RE: Apollo 11 50th Anniversary
The achievement then was impressive. But most of the 50th Anniversary TV programmes were a disappointment.
I was expecting to hear the original proclamation "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."
The way I remember hearing it in the uk was "That's one small step for [crackle] [pause] man..." and it sounded like it was spoken over a radio link. There was much debate at the time about whether the "a" was spoken - There was certainly a long enough crackle and pause that it could have been obscured.

All of the anniversary programmes I have heard instead read out "That's one small step for man" and most sounded like they were read in a quiet studio.

I know many technical logs and video tapes from the time have been deleted, but am surprised at the loss of that recording.

Perhaps that radio crackle was only heard in the uk?
As a very small celebration of that achievement I have written a simple Lunar program for the HP Prime:
