The 50th anniversary of landing on the moon will be marked by braai and a bram. However, the NRK's narrowing roles with the 1969 broadcast were played. – Almost unforgivable, says the expert.
July 20, 1969 at 21.17.40. The Norwegian time has lowered the Eagle to the Moon. This year, it's 50 years since the man first put his feet on the foreign celestial body.
A few million people followed the trip for a month on TV. In this context, the reunion with the PRC broadcasts from the event could have been natural, but that is not possible.
The tape blankets that contained the broadcast were actually reproduced.
– It's a terrible sin. It's almost unforgivable, says Eric Tandberg to NTB.
The Norwegian people were freed by landing on the Moon in 1969, as an NRK expert.

– I can only regret it
The NRK confirms that the broadcast has been audited.
In the sixties, it was unusual to record shows that went directly, because the recordings were very expensive. Still, he recorded the shows from the landing to the Moon.
– But in the 70's they were erased, as was usual at that time. Viewed from today's eyes, this seems completely incomprehensible, and the NRC can only complain that it did not take care of the offspring for such an important event, says Petter Volas, Media Executive Director at the NRK, NTB.

The NRK also marks the anniversary, although the 1969 broadcast was erased. In the days that lasted until July 20th, they send numerous documentaries and films about landing on the Moon. Among other things, they send "The Drama of the Month", the American documentary series in six parts. The first episode will be broadcast on Tuesday, July 9, in the NRK1.
On August 28, an anniversary of the anniversary is held in the concert hall in Oslo. Three American astronauts are on stage. Among those who came in was Charlie Duke, who flew to the Moon in 1972 with the Apollo 16 boat. He is the youngest person to go to the moon.
Fred Haise, who also took part in the dramatic Apollo 13 expedition, is also coming.
In the United States, CBS was responsible for the most famous television broadcast in 1969, and the legendary journalist Walter Cronkite anchored in the studio. On the CBSN channel website, historical shows are re-emitted at the same time as in 1969. Emissions start on July 16, when Apollo 11 was shot from John F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
