It is a date that will be remembered for all time. July 20 1969 – the day man first set foot on the moon. That one shining moment was witnessed by a television audience of six hundred million people across the globe. Remarkably, those immortal images came via a “dish” in outback Australia. It may have been one small step for man, but for a handful of Aussie scientists, it was a giant leap. And one that almost didn’t happen…..Based on an amazing true story The Dish tells the funny and moving tale of Australia’s part in the Apollo 11 moon mission.
