I think it's funny that I learned this from Fark today, but an Apollo afficianado and author (and much more) named Robert Godwin, with help from NASA, has digitally remastered the Apollo mission footage.

I don't know when it will be available, but I'll ask around at SpaceFest next month. I don't have a hi-def DVD player, but I expect they'll be cheap enough soon enough that getting a disk now isn't such a bad idea. I can't wait to see what this looks like!

The link above has videos (Part 1, and Part 2), which they unfortunately label as "Never before seen footage", which isn't strictly true; it's just rare to see this particular stuff shown. The videos are at web-resolution and don't look that great, but they certainly look better than other web vids I've seen. Of course the newscaster mentions the Hoax, but that's to be expected, too.
