Excerpt from a vinyl record produced by the Macquarie Broadcasting Service (MBS) News Division called The Loneliest Journey. A record of man’s greatest adventure - The Apollo 11 Mission which first aired on 2GB, covering the launch of Apollo 11 from Florida.
This clip features a report from Derryn Hinch, representing MBS News and The Sydney Sun, who was in Florida for the launch. Once the countdown begins, Hinch gives an excited and animated report. Having an account from someone on the ground is far more engaging than just using a cross or feed from overseas. The report provides an exclusive insight to an Australian audience in a relatable way as his voice is filled with high energy describing the mood with a touch of Australian slang 'go, go, you beaut'.
