5.0 out of 5 stars Apollo 11 - Men on the Moon, 31 Oct 2005

Michael Spriggs (Scunthorpe, N Lincolnshire United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Spacecraft: Apollo 11 - Men On The Moon [DVD] (DVD)
A 3 DVD box set, containing all original NASA footage - it is worth the money just for the multi-angle shots of the Saturn V taking off.In a lot of sections, a very useful feature is you get to choose the viewing angle and commentary you want to hear (on-board astronaut voicebox recorder, ground controllers, astronaut post flight debriefs). You really feel in control of what you want to see. And, believe me - there is a LOT to see! In fact that is the only downside - this is a mammoth DVD. Historic footage which I can strongly recommend to anyone interested in the Moonshots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!!, 23 April 2006

This review is from: Spacecraft: Apollo 11 - Men On The Moon [DVD] (DVD)
This is brilliant, I have hogged the lounge TV for the last couple of days working through the hours of original footage. Multi angles of the Saturn V blast off as well as the multi angle views of the lunar EVAs, landing, take off, docking and undocking many with multi sound feeds. Scenes of the delivery and assembly of the Saturn V have to be seen to see the sheer size of it all. I'm about to buy the rest in the series now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Apollo 11 - NASA DVD set, 22 Sep 2009
By 
Stan B (Kent, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Spacecraft: Apollo 11 - Men On The Moon [DVD] (DVD)
Overall this is a very good DVD set. Much of it is raw original footage, but in my opinion that adds to the drama and effect. It is staggering to see one of Man's greatest technological achievements 40 years on, via an extremely poor quality black & white TV transmission!. It's also very enlightening to see how primitive cameras, computers etc were on Apollo compared with today's equipment, as is now available at any high street superstore.

Personally I'd have liked a bit more of an overview on Disc 1 of the Apollo set up - how each module fitted together, and most particularly how the lunar & command modules docked & undocked.

But that's a minor criticism. The sheer power of Saturn V lift off is awesome, and the shots of the final minute or so of the lunar approach & descent are fantastic, and even now the tension of those moments comes across on the DVD. Then of course the finale when Armstrong sets foot on the Moon. Like billions of people at the time I can remember exactly where I was at that moment, and it's great to re-live it via this DVD set. Recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars History in the making, 27 Aug 2009

This review is from: Spacecraft: Apollo 11 - Men On The Moon [DVD] (DVD)
The event itself must be one of the defining moments in human history. Stepping aside from the politics that financed it, it's 1969 again and a space enchanted twelve year old can once again live the moment. What's more - in colour from those cameras that were capable. DVD technically excellent; content momentous.

This review is from: Spacecraft: Apollo 11 - Men On The Moon [DVD] (DVD)
Excellent DVD, reminds me of watching the original landing on a grainy TV picture at some very very early hour.

This review is from: Spacecraft: Apollo 11 - Men On The Moon [DVD] (DVD)
A child of the sixties - I was six years old when Man first walked on the moon - this dvd rekindled my early childhood memories and brought home to me what a complex and risky undertaking the Apollo programme was. This dvd contains hours of footage that will ensure the space-geek in you is in space-craft heaven. Thoroughly recommended.
