Adapted by Anita Sullivan

Part one of Apollo 11's five day journey to the moon. A verbatim drama, performed by actors, using the original NASA transcripts from the mission.

In this first episode - Launch - Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins blast off from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida and prepare to leave Earth's orbit.

It's fifty years since Apollo 11 put human beings on another world. Over the anniversary week, Radio 4 tells the story of the five day journey to the moon, using the astronauts’ own words, which are taken entirely from the transcripts of the mission. We travel with Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins on their epic journey, experiencing everything as they did.

A unique perspective on the most historic journey in the history of humanity.

Thanks to Professor Chris Welch, International Space University.
