8 Days: To the Moon and Back (on BBC iPlayer)

Direct Link

Previously classified cockpit audio, recorded by the astronauts themselves, gives a unique insight into their fears and excitement as they undertake the mission. And dramatic reconstruction brings those recordings to life, recreating the crucial scenes that were never filmed - the exhilarating launch, the first sight of the moon, the dramatic touchdown and nail-biting journey home.

Original archive footage from the Apollo programme is combined with newly shot film and cinematic CGI to create the ultimate documentary of the ultimate human adventure.

This can only be described as a stunning audiovisual experience and a fantastic tribute on the 50-year anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission!
