Several months ago, I read in the newspaper that NASA were searching for the original colour footage of the Apollo 11 moonwalk. It appears that it was found, for the images of Neil Armstrong stepping onto the moon for the first time are prestine - and in colour.
All of the historical footage is completely clear - visually, the film is a masterpiece. I saw this at the IFI in Dublin and was completely stunned by how gorgeous it looked.
The interviews are also superb. The astronauts come across as human - they articulate their thoughts and feelings in a way that makes you feel as though you're sitting down to chat with a friend. Certainly a far cry from the "test pilots" I was expecting. Some of the comments are very funny as well - gotta love Michael Collins!
All said and done, you absolutely can not go wrong to buy this DVD. I've pre-ordered and can't wait for it to arrive!
