Editorial Reviews

On July 20, 1969, mankind accomplished its single greatest achievement of all time when a Navy Aviator raised in a farmhouse in Wapakoneta, Ohio, first set foot on another celestial body . The Apollo 11 mission was the first manned mission to land on the Moon. In addition to one million people crowding the highways and beaches near the launch site, an estimated audience of over 700 million people viewed the event on television, Driven by dreams -- and funded by a burning desire to beat the Russians -- the first moon landing on July 20, 1969, was a defining moment in history. Never before had so many people, in so many countries, watched a single event with such astonishment and wonder.

I have mixed feelings about this dvd. The dvd is full color all the way through and has some great original nasa footage but it has been badly edited and some poor choices in audio given.
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.

I was disappointed in this DVD. I read reviews that said it was a well put together DVD of the events of Apollo 11, especially for those who were not born then. Well I remember the landing very well. The DVD did show some good things about the mission. It showed only parts of the launch, Parts of the landing, and could have shown more of lift off from the moon.
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.

Looking for more details of the flight and landing, I didn't find what I was looking for. Mayby too many books and DVD's already? It is still a tremendous achievement, unlike anything in human history. I admire all the people and knowledge that made this happen. Incredible courage from all parties.
