In association with Busbee Communications, Wired Production Group is ecstatic to announce “The Collins Story – Connecting the Moon to the Earth: Live from the Moon” is complete!
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the Moon, the Arthur A. Collins Legacy Association is looking forward to entertaining audiences with another look into the history of Collins Radio and it’s contributions to the success of Apollo 11, the safe return of Apollo 13, and the overall accomplishments of the Apollo program.
In a statement published by Busbee Communications, Annette Busbee explains the importance of the new documentary, “Fifty years ago, on July 20, 1969, citizens of Earth gathered around televisions to witness the first man to step onto the moon’s surface and hear him say, ‘That’s one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.’ The people of Collins Radio – based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa – played an early role in determining how that historic moment could be broadcast live.”
