I remember listening to it "live" on radio!
Another interesting fact:
'Pratley Putty' was invented by George Pratley from Krugersdorp, Gauteng in 1948 while trying to develop a glue to hold components in an electrical box. This sticky substance accompanied Neil Armstrong on the first moon landing in 1969 and kept parts of the Eagle landing ship together.
