What would have been like if the Apollo moon landing hadn’t been televised live to about 600 million around the world, would it have had the same impact?. In fact it was touch and go as whether of not live TV would be used and it was down to Neil Armstrong as the commander of the lunar lander if it would be used. But to get live TV from the moon was a technical challenge in it’s own right, so in this video we look at the TV cameras and the corporate battle to get the landing in to the front rooms of millions.
