Apollo 11 - Men On The Moon - VIDEO (DVD)

Released in 2002, this is not a polished documentary that you might get from PBS or National Geographic. Rather it is a compilation of NASA's raw audio and video feeds during the mission. In instances such as the LEM approach/landing there are multiple audio feeds to select from (Flight Director's loop, on-board voice recorders, flight-to-ground, etc.). There's even audio of Armstrong and Aldrin's post-mission technical debriefing. Similar to its' Project Gemini counterpart, this is an excellent historical collection.
