Armstrong was a guest of CPA Australia to celebrate their 125th anniversary.
NOTE: A code is required to give CPA members early access, no code needed after May 1st.
|ozspace||Part 1 of 4 of this interview is now live a freely available to view!|
|Rick Mulheirn||Terrific Part 1; looking forward to watching parts 2 thru 4. The presenter has clearly done his homework and is to be congratulated on pulling off such an excellent and rare interview.|
|capoetc||Excellent Part 1 of the interview, and I agree that the interviewer was very well prepared. It would be nice to be able to get a DVD of the entire interview -- it is probably the best Armstrong interview I have seen.|
|fredtrav||Great interview. Can't wait for the rest. If part 1 is any indication it will be quite a memorable series. I too hope they will put it on DVD.|
|328KF||This is off to a great start. Armstrong came across as relaxed and happy to be talking to the interviewer. In the When We Left Earth series he was appeared a little stiff due mainly to the fact that he was reading the lines. I'm glad he is still open to doing appearances like this after that unfortunate event.|
I noticed he had a standard issue black Sharpie in his shirt pocket...just in case
|ozspace||CPA say that the interview gets even better. The interview was conducted back in August and includes Neil narrating the Google Moon/DAC merged video that he showed to congress last year.|
By prior agreement, Neil reviewed and approved the entire interview before being released.
|ozspace||Neil Armstrong episode 2 of 4 is now up!|
|garymilgrom||Are these available for purchase to watch on regular TV? I don't like watching video on my computer, especially for hours at a time. |
I would gladly pay to rent or purchase the file and/or to buy a DVD. They should put this in iTunes University. Thanks.
|GoesTo11||Agree with the previous posters; these are terrific so far and really need to be made available for purchase and/or download.|
|MikeSpace||These are fantastic! |
When I search YouTube for 'Neil Armstrong Interview' about the only real thing that comes up is Part 2 of the 60 Minutes piece he did when 'First Man' was released. Can't even find Part 1!
Is it just me or isn't this a huge exclusive that should be getting more attention for the general public and students?
Can't wait for Parts 3 and 4 and I would definitely purchase a DVD.
|garymilgrom||Not only are these a great exclusive Mike but the tie-in to the accounting profession is unusual too. A very interesting find.|
EDIT: Neil's father was an auditor and the producers seem to have leveraged that into an interview.
|Kite||What great interviews. He is perfectly happy to answer an informed questioner and seems genuinely to be enjoying his chance to explain all aspects of his career. Neil Armstrong is in my opinion a very modest and humble human being and has turned out to be a marvelous first man.|
|ozspace||I have been told that, due to contractual restrictions, under which the interview was agreed, the interview can only be aired on CPA website - however, it will remain on the site for two years.|
|Tykeanaut||Brilliant, bring on Parts 3 and 4. Surely they will sell this to other TV companies for airing? |
|Rick Mulheirn||Neil Armstrong signed over his image rights to Purdue University some years ago and is very particular about the use of such.|
You can rest assured, if he stipulated certain terms and conditions about the use of the interview they will be set in stone.
If he said no DVD production on a commercial basis he meant it.
|garymilgrom||Thanks for this info. While I understand Neil's decision to stop signing, I don't understand why he wouldn't want his thoughts to be available to a wider audience. He's a smart person who has been in a unique position, and his observations are worthwhile.|
I can respect his decision even if I don't understand it.
|Rick Mulheirn||It is frustrating Gary but an earlier post indicated the interview is available online for two years. More than enough time to be seen by many many people.|
I was fortunate enough to attend a private event with Neil Armstrong a couple of years ago. He made it clear to the organiser that he did not want publicity and only agreed to a couple of photos with his host at the last minute on the day.
But to be fair to the guy he was there in a private capacity, while on vacation with friends in the UK. It was not a formal or publicised event. Rather it was a "just passing" kind of thing and he wanted no special treatment, no photos or no security of any kind.
At public events, such as the 40th anniversary bashes or corporate presentations he appears a little more relaxed when it comes to photos.
|Rick Mulheirn||Part 3 now available.|
|ozspace||The fourth and final episode is now up and includes the Google Moon/DAC in-cabin landing video, with the live commentary by Neil he gave at the CPA event in Sydney.|
Interesting Neil no longer seems to mention Buzz by name, rather he refers to him as copilot, crewmate, etc.
|APG85||I thoroughly enjoyed the interviews. Never realized he was qualified in the B-29. Fascinating... |
