This one from 1968, when I was as old as my son Joey is now. I remember watching this on TV on Christmas Eve - Channel 2 from New York City. All the manned spaceflight coverage was done by none other than Walter Cronkite himself, who would later become KB2GSD.
Apollo 8 was an important milestone. During the previous year, on February 21, 1967, three astronauts - Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee had perished on the launchpad when a fire erupted inside the Command Module of Apollo 1 during a countdown dress rehearsal. More than a year and a half later, Apollo 7 had successfully tested the redesigned spacecraft in earth orbit during its flight in November of 1968. Apollo 8, with Jim Lovell, Frank Borman and Bill Anders flew to the moon, orbited around it and returned safely to the earth. This marked the first time men had ever flown to another celestial body and the first time that human eyes had ever seen the far side of the moon.
What follows is something I found on YouTube which is not what we saw on TV that evening; but is a nice little three minute show in and of itself
