Consumer waste from the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch” is turning a Hawaiian beach “into plastic”, Tropic of Cancer presenter Simon Reeve has found.
Conservationist Sam Gon escorted him to the remote Kamilo Beach, where plastic bottles, bags, tyres, rusting petrol cans, and other waste from around the world washes up.
They found more plastic particles than sand, as they dug a hole on what has been described as “the world’s dirtiest beach”.
This clip is raw from Camera E-8 on the launch umbilical tower/mobile launch program of Apollo 11, July 16, 1969. This is an HD transfer from the 16mm original. Even more excellent footage is available on our DVDs at our website at spacecraftfilms.com
The camera is running at 500 fps, making the total clip of over 8 minutes represent just 30 seconds of actual time. Narration is provided by Mark Gray (me), Executive Producer for Spacecraft Films.
