On UK Channel 5 on Wednesday 2nd June at 9.00pm: "Stranger than Fiction: The Truth Behind the Moon Landings." According to a Sunday Times preview, Bill Kaysing gets "a wry introduction.." which "..hardly suggests he is being taken seriously..." Apparently the programme shoots down the various "hoax" arguments like the "fluttering flags" and the absence of stars in the photos. I'm relieved to see that the programme includes Buzz Aldrin and Patrick Moore. It's a shame a programme like this is necessary at all, but it's about time someone redressed the balance. Let's hope they give the sensible contributors enough time to have their say...

I just hope the interviewer gets a punching by Buzz "Sugar Ray" Aldrin ;0)

I watched the programme earlier this evening and was delighted to see a long-overdue demolition job on the "Moon hoax" nuts. Just about every piece of "evidence" put forward by the hoax-nuts was carefully taken apart. Buzz Aldrin and Patrick Moore were given the chance to make proper contributions, but the best contributions were by the gentleman whose name I forget who demonstrated why shadows aren't always parallel, how astronauts in shadow are illuminated by reflections from the lit surface, and why stars don't appear in the photographs. All too obvious to most of us, but this was explained for the casual watchers who have been misled in the past. A special mention also for Bill Kaysing, who told us with a straight face that NASA had a ceramics laboratory which had manufactured the hundreds of pounds of lunar samples (and somehow fooled everybody who examined them!) Jim Lovell was right - what a kook! (Sue me Bill!)
