Apollo 8 - The Private Medical Tape (Full Mission 08)

Published on Apr 3, 2015
Apollo 8 - Private Medical Tape (Full Mission 08)

This video contains the 26-30 hour period of the Apollo 8 mission. MCC reveals that it has heard through downlinked tapes from the crew that Frank Borman has been unwell. The crew conduct a "private medical conference" - which is later played by the PAO. This tape does not reveal much, but is interesting in that it was broadcast. There then follows the change of shift media briefing which continues the questioning about the crews health. "Live" Air-to-Ground is on the other channel. This video ends just before the scheduled first television transmission.

NOTE: During the Apollo 8 mission audio was recorded in real time on one track and the other (also live) was the PAO. PAO played back "recorded tape" of the air to ground. This audio is muted as the listener will have already heard that audio on the air-to-ground audio. The PAO will make reference to "playing a tape" but the audio that you next hear is NOT the recorded tape. I hope this makes sense!

Part of this videos audio is in stereo, whilst the second part is presented in seperate channels.

The video is presented in 16:9 to allow use of photos and captions on the right of the screen. Captions are used to show PAO events.

NOTE -

Orbiter Space Simulator is used to depict events as they were happening in real time, although I do not claim attitudes/spacecraft orientation are correct.

I sourced the Apollo 8 Flight Journal to assist with photo placement and audio editing. I would recommend the viewer using this as an aid whilst listening as it gives great descriptions of the technical details of the flight as it happened and explains, in laymans terms, what is going on.

Excellent work, Tony!  The only comment I have is something you likely don't control, and that's the Orbiter model of the CSM.  The Apollo 8 CSM, spacecraft 103, didn't carry a docking probe.  I'm not positive that it even had the docking ring installed, though if I had to bet, I'd say it likely did, for thermal reasons.

Other than that, I find nothing that's not valid and accurate.  Very good work.

Amazing video!  Thank you so much.

I was fortunate enough as a ten year old to be standing on my grandparents front lawn in Indialantic, FL watching the launch.  I'll never forget the sight.

Don't thank me, I'm just posting the video.  The appreciation goes to lunarmodule5.

Apollo 8 -Happy Birthday Mother (Full Mission 09)

Published on Apr 4, 2015
Apollo 8 - Happy Bithday Mother (Full Mission 09)

This video covers the 31-33 hour point in the mission. The first TV broadcast is made with interior views. The crew attempt to show the Earth but the telephoto lense they use will not show any definition. Instead the Earth is shown as a bright blob and MCC are worried they might burn out the TV cameras tube. More interior shots follow, with Bill Anders demonstrating weightlessness with his toothbrush and Jim Lovell wishing his Mother a happy birthday. The video concludes with a resumption of the end of shift briefing that was paused so the TV broadcast could be watched.

NOTE: During the Apollo 8 mission audio was recorded in real time on one track and the other (also live) was the PAO. PAO played back "recorded tape" of the air to ground. This audio is muted as the listener will have already heard that audio on the air-to-ground audio.

Apollo 8 - Egg Nog (Full Mission 11)

This video covers the 36-40 hour point in the mission. During this period the spcecraft is turned into a new attitude for more star/navigation sightings and is then put back into PTC. Lovell and Anders sleep while Borman keeps watch over the systems. During this video the well know exchange reporting that Bill Anders' wife, Val, had been at Charlie Dukes for a Christmas drink (egg nog!) and was looking well, is relayed to the crew.

Apollo 8 - Under the Influence (Full Mission 16)

This video covers the 55-57 hour point of the flight. Going back to the PTC mode after the TV broadcast, the crew are informed that they are now under the moons influence, gravity wise. There follows a press conference from JSC then more communications with the crew. Only 28,000 nautical miles from the moon plans are being made for the mid course correction at the 61 hour point.


NOTE: During the Apollo 8 mission audio was recorded in real time on one track and the other (also live) was the PAO. PAO played back "recorded tape" of the air to ground.

This video covers the 58-61 hour point of the flight. The crew exit PTC and prepare for a mid course correction of 2fps using the RCS quads on the CSM. After this is completed the crew return the spacecraft to the PTC attitude and start PTC again. The aim of the MCC-4 burn was to reduce the high point of the intended lunar orbit by 5-7 miles.

Apollo 8 - Go For LOI (Full Mission 19)

Published on Jun 7, 2015
Apollo 8 - Go For LOI (Full Mission 19)

This video covers the 65-69 hour point of the flight. The crew prepare for LOI. Procedures for the burn are read up to the crew, along with contingency procedures in case the burn does not go to plan. The crew turn the spcacraft to the LOI burn attitude, then back to PTC atitude. The infamous sequence beginns with Jerry Carrs communication of "Go For LOI", which is followed by re-orienting the spacecraft to the burn attitude, Loss of Signal and finally the LOI burn, which is where we leave the action until the next video.

Note: The audio for this video was extremely difficult to piece together and there are about 4 short tape segments missing from the final edit. This audio does not seem available at present. The audio in the second half of the video (PAO explaining that he is cutting in to the conversation) is the PAO tape, but not the live tape as on the other videos. I have managed to set the sequencing right but what you hear as "live" air-to-ground is the recorded PAO tape, not the live tape. At other points you will be able to tell when PAO is letting the live stream go out. You will also notice the "clipping" on the voice tapes, which is what happened when the sequences were played back by the PAO and the gaps were cut out. Although this isnt the best presentation of the events, it is the best I could do.

Note: For the LOS sequences I have added in some of the on-board voice tapes.

Apollo 8 - The 1st Lunar Orbit (Full Mission 20)

Published on Jun 13, 2015
Apollo 8 - The 1st Lunar Orbit (Full Mission 20)

This video covers the 69-71 hour point of the flight. Following the LOI burn the crew re-orient the spacecraft 180 degrees to reaquire radio communications with Houston. Once AOS happens the crew give burn reports and the first detailed description of the lunar surface. The video ends at LOS at the end of the first orbit

Note: The audio for this video was extremely difficult to piece together. The audio available is the PAO tape, which means that although the broadcast, in this case, is "live", when PAO talks he cuts out the Air-to-Ground. For instance the first calls to Apollo 8 at AOS by Capcom Jerry Carr are not heard on this tape. Therefore I have added in the audio that was recorded at the Honeysuckle site in Australia which has that audio in. I also added in the crew onboard tapes recording just after AOS as it provides continuity to what was happening.

I have added in the 16mm film and photos taken at this time in the mission. The 16mm film is included and played at a speed of 1 frame per second. It was recorded this way to allow as much coverage from orbit with limited film available. It is usually shown at 25 frames a second, to give the impression of flying smoothly over the surface. I thought it was important to present it here as it was taken, to preserve the historic record.

Audio is presented in two channels at some points. Headphones are advised.

This video covers the second orbit and 71-73 hour point of the flight. Sequences start with the photography carried out during orbit 2. After AOS a TV broadcast is made by the crew. After which there are conversations with reference to the upcoming LOI-2 burn, scheduled after LOS.


I have added in the 16mm film and photos taken at this time in the mission. The 16mm film is included and played at a speed of 2 frame per second. It was recorded at 1fps but to ensure continuity (this is the film taken on the 2nd orbit) it is played at double speed. I have also shown it this way to allow as much coverage from orbit with limited film available. It is usually shown at 25 frames a second, to give the impression of flying smoothly over the surface. I thought it was important to present it here as it was taken, to preserve the historic record.

Audio is presented in two channels at some points. Headphones are advised.

The video is presented in 16:9 to allow use of photos and captions on the right of the screen. Captions are used to show PAO events.

NOTE -

Orbiter Space Simulator is used to depict events as they were happening in real time, although I do not claim attitudes/spacecraft orientation are correct.

I sourced the Apollo 8 Flight Journal to assist with photo placement and audio editing. I would recommend the viewer using this as an aid whilst listening as it gives great descriptions of the technical details of the flight as it happened and explains, in laymans terms what is going on.

Apollo 8 - Red Rose (Full Mission 22)

Apollo 8 - Red Rose (Full Mission 22)

This video covers the second orbit and 73-75 hour point of the flight. The crew have just performed the LOI-2 burn which placed the spacecraft in a near circular 60 mile orbit. The comm is quieter on this 3rd orbit pass. The crew continue to take pictures and 16mm video. Frank Borman was supposed to lay-read at his church this Christmas Eve but points out he cannot make it - Instead he reads a bible passage to Red Rose (a member of his church and a MCC engineer who Mike Collins has spotted in MCC) and the rest of his church (and the world). There is a press conference at JSC and during the press conference LOS occurs.

I have added in the 16mm film and photos taken at this time in the mission. There are 100s of photographs taken by Bill Anders on this video. They are shown in sequence taken.

Audio is presented in two channels at some points. Headphones are advised.

The video is presented in 16:9 to allow use of photos and captions on the right of the screen. Captions are used to show PAO and other events.
