Public Service Broadcasting's Go! is a marriage of retro-electronica and archive audio from the historic Apollo 11 moon landing mission, focussing on the work of Mission Control at NASA headquarters.

For their video for the track Lucy Dawkins & Tom Readdy also made exceptional use of the public domain NASA archive and crafted an ideal visual accompaniment to the track, also featuring a band performance and graphics tying the live action elements together.

Lucy Dawkins & Tom Readdy: 

"This was pretty much a dream brief for us - to work with one of our favourite bands on a track about the moon landing!

"Go! recalls the lunar module's dramatic descent to the moon's surface, when there were doubts they had sufficient fuel to land. We were keen to represent this narrative and celebrate the role of Mission Control in the Apollo 11 mission. We combined footage of the band with strong graphical elements and animation to reflect the tension of the situation. 

"Thanks to NASA's amazing media collection which has been made available in the public domain, we were also able to feature archive mission control footage, photography and the original Apollo 11 flight plans."
