Storyline

Man's landing on the moon was our greatest technological achievement. The Apollo 11 mission was truly the stuff of dreams. For the first time, our species walked on another celestial body. Even more remarkable was their ability to make it back. This is the story of the July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 moon landing. Drama with digitally remastered original footage. Written by TW

Trivia

When this movie was first aired on the History Channel (US), the moment when the character of Neil Armstrong puts his foot on the moon was timed to within a minute of the 40th anniversary of Armstrong actually stepping on the moon. See more »

Goofs

The command module in the movie showed an elaborate digital display. It appeared to be made up of seven segment green LED digits. Although green LEDs had been invented before 1969, they were only first commercialized in 1968. They were extremely inefficient and had not been invented yet in a 7-segment configuration. Furthermore, the command module did not have the logic available on board to drive a digital clock. Nixie tubes were more common in the day, but they would have drawn too much power to be practical.

Too many faults and boring
21 July 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film was OK, but it was destroyed with mistakes like a whooshing sound in once scene as command module and lunar module went past near the moon. It might appeal to those who know nothing about science, but to the majority of educated viewers, it is an insult to their intelligence. The final straw was when about half way thought the film, green 7-segment LED digital displays were in view. They were not even invented in 1969 and thus were not used in Apollo 11. I had to switch it off at that point - I had enough. The acting was reasonable, but on the whole I found this film boring. At least in The Dish movie (which was quite fictional), they used authentic equipment used in 1969. Producers should do their homework before embarking on a topic they know little of nothing about.

For the purists out there, don't bother with this film. Nothing beats the telecasts during moon landing in July 1969.
