Buzz Aldrin: Walking on the moon


40 years ago this year the Eagle landed and two men walked on the moon for the first time.

As part of the celebrations, the BBC has commissioned a series of documentaries, Nasa's Story, on the US space programme. Nick Higham has been speaking to Buzz Aldrin, one of the pioneers on that Apollo 11 mission in 1969.
