A related question:

Probably 10 to 15 years ago, NASA made a feverish search for the original 2-inch video tapes from the Apollo 11 moon landing, so the tapes could be properly digitized with high quality before the world's last 2-inch tape player was ditched. "Everybody" had the images transmitted back to earth; they were definitely "1960 quality". Much better quality video images were brought back on tape. (And still images were of course excellent.) But at the time when the tape machine was to be thrown out, noone could tell where the tapes had gone.

I never heard of the tapes ever being found. Are they still lost? (And: Was the tape machine ditched, or was it saved in hope of the tapes being found?

I couple of years ago, saw a a brushed-up version of the moon landing movie, but I interpreted the written commments as this being a digitally processed version of the video transmitted to earth (and the quality was certainly far below what I would expect from a 2-inch tape).

Does anyone know the full story of the video tapes from the moon landing?
