WTH??? didn't NASA tell some years ago that the films were all in bad shapes and impossible to retrieve ?

Houston, We Erased The Apollo 11 Tapes

July 16, 2009

An exhaustive, three-year search for some tapes that contained the original footage of the Apollo 11 moonwalk has concluded that they were probably destroyed during a period when NASA was erasing old magnetic tapes and reusing them to record satellite data.

"We're all saddened that they're not there. We all wish we had 20-20 hindsight," says Dick Nafzger, a TV specialist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, who helped lead the search team.
