Don't worry. Icke is supposedly setting up a TV and radio service, that will no doubt tell the unbiased truth far better than any mainstream show.

Interestingly, it was another Channel 5 documentary (this one) that originally opened my eyes to the fact that the moon landing hoax was even a thing, and brought me to this site in the first place ... where I found that one of the actual scientists in the show (Jay Windley) was a regular poster.

And I cannot even recount how much I have learned from Jay and others here in the time since then.

Ah, yes. I remember that. It was a good one. Seems to me if they're going to show that other travesty they should show this one to provide some balance.

Does anyone else find that the Brits seem more predisposed toward disbelieving the history of Apollo?  I've never seen any studies or polls which compare the percentage of doubters by country, but based on some of the exchanges I've had, my hunch is that the UK would rank very high in a nation-by-nation comparison.

Maybe their beliefs are shaped by some weird sense of national pride or envy instead of rational thought.

A lot of Brits don't believe Apollo was real because it is American not because they have thought about it in any depth or have seen anything to make them disbelieve.
Since the Second Gulf War here is a lot of vague anti - American feeling in the UK.
If pressed a lot of the moon hoax believers will admit they have no reason to think it is a hoax apart from it being American.

Not really asked people, I expect there are the same believers in proportion?

I would imagine there are more thinking "if only", missed opportunities rather than it never happened. More the bitter n twisted man muttering into his ale at the end of the bar "if only we had hem Germans after the war" sort of thinking. Not based on any reality.
