Welcome back to the blog
This week marks a very special part of Space history.
July 20th 1969
The historic day man first walked on the moon and Neil Armstrong spoke the historic line that has become one history's most remembered quotes.
In the last couple of weeks I've managed to watch a few of the documentaries that have been showing here in the UK and also catch the Apollo 11 film here in the cinema.
Everyone knows the story of the Moon Landing but I have to recommend 2 things for you to watch to be captivated by this story again.
8 Days to the Moon,
Currently on BBC I-player
The programme shows the moon landing - with original footage and voice recordings from the start of the show you are taken in for the ride. The footage is brilliant put together and looks incredible on screen. It's something I really recommend for everyone to watch so make sure you add this to your watch list whilst it is available to watch.
Next up is the actual Apollo 11 film that has been showing in cinemas over the last few weeks. Whilst the idea of the film is very similar to the 8 Days on the Moon it shows more of the story of what took place in Mission Control. The footage from Space is stunning in this film and well worth catching on the big screen if you can. Its one that will also be worth an add for anyone's blu-ray collection.
Have you seen anything good about the Moon landing that you recommend watching, let me know below and also if you have seen the the show or film as well.
Have a great weekend
