KTVU's Claud Mann reports from San Francisco's Union Square, where air raid sirens herald the Apollo 11 crew's splashdown in the Pacific Ocean on July 24th 1969. He interviews several passers-by for their reactions to the historic moon landing: "I'm glad they made it ... I really liked it because I want to pretend in my back yard ... It's been just wonderful, especially in color ... That's groovy ... I think people are apathetic! Where's all the excitement?"
