The Dish (DVD) £2.99 [HMV and Play]

Apollo 11's astronauts will walk on the moon - and the huge satellite dish outside a sheep-farming Australian town will beam it globally. But as giddy locals await the moment the world will rely on them, the dish flatlines. And its Aussie crew and by-the-book NASA supervisor from the U.S. differ on how to fix it. A comical culture clash erupts in this fact-based tale of how history's biggest televised event was almost cancelled.

Maybe not the 'Deal' of the century but it is a film you may not have heard of and will be pleasantly surprised by. Stars Sam Neil.

i would never have even considered watching this, but then it was on when i flew to America and i had nothing better to do.
its a very good movie and i thoroughly enjoyed it, the scene where the school bands plays the American national anthem certainly got a few laughs

The Sam Neil character was actually from Yorkshire in real life, and had a broad Yorkshire accent.
Removed on purpose from the story by the makers for nationalistic reasons, same sort of **** the yanks do all the time.
lame.
cold.
