In all seriousness though. This is a surprisingly common problem with old film archives.

That's really really sad.

4+ years of media experience, and they don't know about the dammed tags you break off to stop people recording over old tapes?

How did that happen?

They were trying to save money by reusing tapes and nobody thought to pull the Apollo 11 to the side after the mission was done. So the Apollo 11 tapes were just in the mix of tapes and got reused. The original tapes that were broadcast down apparently had a much higher resolution than what was broadcast out for the public television. They could've taken those tapes and digitally remastered them too look as good as modern day HD. I think the best thing they have now it a recording of the original tapes.
