Starring Daniel Lapaine (Hotel Babylon, Muriel’s Wedding) as Neil Armstrong, James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Smallville) as Buzz Aldrin and Andrew Lincoln (Afterlife, Teachers) as Michael Collins, this drama documentary weaves the story of the men who undertook the mission with HD Nasa footage of Apollo 11 to bring together a unique testimony of this historic event.

Written by Tony Basgallop (Hotel Babylon), and directed by Richard Dale (Diana: The Last Days of a Princess, 9/11: The Twin Towers), Moonshot is the compelling story of the moment that united 600 million people around the world.

Dramatising key moments and events in the years spent preparing for their mission, the film builds a picture of the astronauts’ lives on the ground and how they shaped what happened in space and on the moon.
