Moon Landing: The Lost Tapes
The History Channel  |  December 27, 2019

When Neil Armstrong's boot touched lunar soil on July 20, 1969, it was our momentous, first foray into the universe around us. But the real truth of how we got to the moon, the inelegant, messy and often harrowing reality of regular people actually doing the thing that was thought to be impossible...the fits and starts and mistakes and explosions... that story hasn't been told. For the 50th anniversary of man's most audacious technological achievement, Moon Landing: The Lost Tapes will mine previously unexplored primary source material: audio interviews with astronauts and engineers locked away in NASA's vaults, camera reels featuring lunar footage thought to be lost for a generation, home movies that have gathered dust for decades. Working with producer Nicole Rittenmeyer (102 MINUTES THAT CHANGED AMERICA), we'll weave a fully immersive narrative from this material, exclusively, to create a taut, seamless, tick-tock style countdown. By forgoing sit-down interviews and relying instead on footage you've never seen to tell surprising stories you've never heard before, we'll take viewers inside man's voyage to the moon.
