Australian Television Broadcast
Monday 21st July 1969
Television viewers in Australia were in a privileged position for the Apollo 11 Moonwalk.
Until recently, it seemed that all recordings of the Australian broadcast had been lost.

(Duration: 3' 32".)
More of this footage is available on the DVD.
This was the only known recording of this sequence recorded in Australia, using the video from Honeysuckle (and audio from Goldstone), until November 2006 when the author identified a recording made at Sydney Video.
One other Australian commercial TV kinnie recording was found in 2008.
Thanks go to John Sarkissian at Parkes and to the ABC, Charles Sammut (who persisted until he located the footage) and ABC Archivist Caitlin Hickie (for obtaining permission to make this footage available), and also to Bill Wood (ex-Goldstone) for cleaning up the audio.
It was digitised and enhanced by Colin Mackellar, January 2006.
