Most of the audio is taken from various original sources for example the capcom loop, the flight directors loop etc. and this is great, but during the landing, rather than you hearing the capcoms loop they switch to the post mission debriefing and the debriefing doesn't match up with the video. If you are an avid Apollo follower this doesn't really detract as is a fresh perspective on things, but if you aren't then this can be quite confusing.
The video also has some bad editing for example on the ascent phase from the moon you see the lunar module as seen from the command module, then you cut to an inside shot showing Neil and Buzz then back to the outside shot from the command module. The problem is the inside shot of Neil and Buzz isn't in sync as this shot was taken in the command module but the way the video is presented it tries to fool you into thinking its a shot of them inside the lunar module.
There is a very good extended launch sequence though and you get to see a lot more than most other videos give you.
This is really one for Apollo or NASA fans however. Although the footage is good, the bad editing choices let it down.
The DVD "In the shadow of the moon" shows more and better footage of Apollo 11.
I would not recommend this DVD if your buying it to remember the history of this mission.

Feels like the same company who did the half-baked "History of the Space Shuttle" collection. Little here that really sells the disk.Published 17 months ago by Steven W Jochums
Great stars, plus the chance to see Buzz' Aldrin. A very good introduction to space movies. Brilliant. All the action was superb.Published on February 22, 2014 by Brian Fitzgibbon
