A close-circuit TV interview with the Apollo 11 crew (post 29)

Marv and I eat dinner at the Cape Kennedy Hilton. We then head back to the Apollo 11 News Center to watch a 7 p.m. live television interview with the Apollo 11 crew. They are in quarantine and speak to us by closed circuit TV from their crew quarters. We are present with the interviewers at the News Center. Asking the questions are CBS anchorman Walter Cronkite, UPI space reporter Al Rossiter, Jr., and science writers Evert Clark and Joel Shurkin. During the interview, Mike Collins jokes, “I am one of the few Americans who will not be able to see the EVA. Please save the tapes for me.”
