The Space Movie

The Space Movie is a documentary film produced in 1979 by Tony Palmer at the request of NASA, to celebrate the tenth anniversay of Neil Armstrong's Apollo 11 moon landing. The film was released theatrically in 1980, on VHS in 1983 and on DVD in 2007.


The music for The Space Movie was produced by the English multi-instrumentalist Mike Oldfield. The film included pieces from Oldfield's released works, including Tubular Bells and Hergest Ridge, Ommadawn and "Portsmouth".

It also featured excerpts from what was Oldfield's then-new album, Incantations. The film also made use of the orchestral arrangements of Oldfield's first two albums, The Orchestral Tubular Bells and notably The Orchestral Hergest Ridge, which has never been released. The Space Movie soundtrack was also intended to be released as an album.

A short version of The Space Movie is available on the Elements - The Best of Mike Oldfield video.
