Dutch Apollo TV broadcasts

Greetings webforum users,

The Dutch news/TV station NOS, covered the Apollo, Skylab and ASTP projects live and with recorded NASA feeds.

They covered everything from Apollo 7 or 8 to 17.
Within this archive, at 'private-1-AS##' you can view the amateur video tape recordings of Apollo 11 through 17 as they were experienced by the dutch populace.

https://archive.org/details/thirdpartyspacevideos

The first few are in B/W, and it looks like he later upgraded to a colour-capable system.

To my knowledge these are the best amateur video/audio recordings of the Apollo video feed in existence. Especially the later recordings rival the NASA archives, as sometimes all NASA has are telecine recordings.

And because the NOS taped over their own recordings of their broadcast, these recordings represent 99% of the existing NOS footage.

Please enjoy, and tell me what you think!

I am curious if it would be possible to 'stack' video that has the same scene. Like the first minute of private-1-AS17-3? Amateur astronomers stack thousands of video frames to get a sharper picture with less noise.

PS: Yes I am Dutch!

The NOS in the Netherlands is tasked with covering news and sports for the Dutch television and radio.

And... Cool videos in the OP.

I have attempted to stack some video footage to pictures. I have also made panorama's.

I used Microsoft ICE 2.0 for the panorama's and Autostakkert! for the stacks.

They can also be found here among other things: https://www.flickr.com/photos/161307...57672325898307

Stacks:






Panorama's

That is very cool.



Wait, what? They were in color? I never knew that. I always assumed they were in black and white from NASA, even though I watched the Apollo 11 moon landing in Venezuela.


Shows how cheap my parents were. We did not get a color TV until about 1973.
