it was one of the great moments in my childhood to share the first landing on the moon summer ’69. We spent our holidays at the north sea in a cottage my mother rented. We had to feed the TV with DM coins and when the moment came that the eagle should land on the moon’s surface suddenly the screen was black!!!!
“Where are all the coins” was the question – and a lot of panic in the whole family to find them. I suppose it was only a few seconds till we found them, but I felt it was like an eternity….
