Bob Pritchard & Tim O'Brien: Jodrell Bank and the Space Race

Tim O’Brien spoke with Bob Pritchard about Jodrell Bank’s role in the race to the Moon. Bob worked with Sir Bernard Lovell and Professor John Davies in tracking the Soviet and American space probes during the 1960s. He was there in the control room at Jodrell Bank over those few days in 1969 when history was made as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set foot on the Moon. This discussion included material from Jodrell Bank’s archive and tells the inside story of how Jodrell Bank tracked the race to the Moon.
