Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon in July 1969 (Picture: Getty Images) It’s 50 years to the day since the Apollo 11 moon landing, which saw Neil Armstrong became the first man ever to set foot on the moon, uttering those immortal words: ‘That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.’ In light of the anniversary Brits have been sharing memories of the big day in 1969, revealing what they were doing at the time and how they learned the news. And Channel 4 has also been giving viewers the opportunity to relive the Apollo 11 mission – or see it for the first time for those who weren’t born – with its Moon Landing Live shows this week, leading up to the main show on Saturday night which will recreate the events of that day in real time. If you want to tune in and pretend it’s 1969 all over again, we’ve got all the information you need. When is Moon Landing: Live on TV? Channel 4 will be showing Moon Landing: Live on Saturday night from 8pm. The film will run for an hour and a half and will follow in real time Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s final descent to the surface of the moon as they take those first steps. Nostalgia fans can also expect plenty of period detail woven around the footage as news reporters host the coverage and interview people in the street – while the UK’s then Prime Minister Harold Wilson and US President Richard Nixon also feature. It follows a week’s worth of short mission updates from the astronauts and Mission Control which have been airing on Channel 4. What was the Apollo 11 mission? Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin took the giant leap on the Apollo 11 mission (Picture: Getty Images) The mission, as a direct result of the ‘space race’ with the Soviet Union, followed through on John F Kennedy’s pledge that the US would put a man on the moon before the end of the decae. It consisted of civilian research pilot Armstrong, US Air Force pilot Aldrin and Michael Collins, who was the command module pilot, tasked with piloting the command module in the moon’s orbit while the others went on their spacewalk. Apollo 11 took off from Cape Kennedy, Florida, on 16 July 1969, with the lunar module touching down at 4.16pm on 20 July after more than 100 hours of travel. Armstrong and Aldrin spent two hours on the surface of the moon, collecting lunar rock samples and planting the US flag before returning to the lunar module. They successfully re-entered the Earth’s atmopshere and splashed down into the Pacific Ocean on 24 July, at 12.50pm. Since then Nasa has made five more successful manned lunar landings, coming between 1969 and 1972 – with 10 other astronauts walking on its surface.

A LONG-range speed camera that caught TV star Nick Knowles while on his phone may go nationwide after trials. The device, with a 1km range, recorded 1,200 speeders and 32 other offences in its first month on the A417 and A419 in Gloucestershire. Its video and photos can also nail tailgaters. More speed cameras could be rolled out across the country after the trial Knowles, 56, who was clocked at 85mph, got a six-month ban last month. The Department of Transport announced it would review the way roads are policed in a bid to improve safety for motorists and pedestrians. The review, which is the first of its kind, will help identify any gaps in the service and new technology which can be used to help catch dangerous drivers. It will also look at how police forces across the country share information with other agencies, including Highways England and the Home Office. Nick Knowles, 56, was clocked at 85mph and received six-month ban last month Around 330 people were killed in 2017 due to accidents involving drunk drivers The crackdown comes after an eight-year high in the number of road deaths caused by drink drivers. More than 60 people have been killed on London roads this year alone, according to recent figures, with eight deaths in five days earlier this month. The shocking figures are thought to be linked with a major drop in police numbers, with 20,000 officers leaving the force since 2010. Edmund King, president of the AA, said: “The biggest deterrent to someone drink-driving, picking up their phone behind the wheel or driving without insurance, is to have a very strong and very visible police presence. “Reducing the number of specialist traffic police by a third over a decade has meant that some drivers feel they can regularly drive or act dangerously and get away with it.” [article-rail-section title=”latest motors news” posts_category=”9670″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”recent” /] Michael Ellis, minister for road safety, said: “We have strong laws in place to ensure people are kept safe on our roads at all times. “But roads policing is a key deterrent in stopping drivers breaking the law and risking their and other people’s lives. “This review will not only highlight where police forces are doing good work, it will show what more can be done to improve road safety.” GOT a story?
