Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon came top in a recent survey in the UK into TV viewers' favourite historical footage.
The research, to mark the launch of Toshiba's new Ultra HD9 Series TV, aimed to find the moments in history we would most like to see rerun in better quality.
The first moonwalk polled 34%, beating the 1966 victory of England in the World Cup (13%), Martin Luther King's "I have a dream..." speech (9%), the Coronation (8%) and Torvill and Dean's Sarajevo Winter Olympic performance of Bolero that tied with the Coronation.
