A Man on the Moon was in the TV Times

20th July 1969 (according to Wikipedia at 20:17 UTC – GMT, I think) Apollo 11 landed on the Moon and a spacewalk took place 6 hours later. My mum says they bought a colour TV especially but can’t remember if the studio footage was in colour – the moon being in B&W.

I was in France on my first trip to my French exchange on holiday in Hyeres but my mum always sent me a large envelope with cuttings from newspapers usually about Chelsea FC and important events like the moon landings.

‘A Man on the Moon was in the TV Times’ is also a line from my forthcoming single ‘Blue Dansette” Bandcamp stereo single and video available on July 30th, 7″ Mono Vinyl available for pre-order.
