“Debrief: Apollo 8” is a 1969 documentary about the Apollo 8 mission of a year earlier that saw the first humans leave Earth’s orbit and enter the orbit of the Moon. It was an essential mission in preparation for the Apollo 11 mission of 1969 that resulted in the first manned landing on the lunar surface.

The film is an interesting look at the mission from shortly after it actually took place, long before there were Shuttles, Virgin Galactic or Space X. If you’re a fan of vintage NASA, this film is a must watch.
