Movie: The Dish (2000)

More info at Amazon

As a movie this pretty much stinks, but as a documentary of one the Australian radio telescopes used in the Apollo 11 mission it’s good. The dramatizations are stiff and stereotypical, but the footage of the TV coverage of the first moon walk is given room to breathe. This is really the only place I’ve seen some extended bits of that footage, and it’s facinating.
