Lunar Modules and cellphones

1) How much memory did the Apollo Lunar Module (LM) have and 2) when was the first cellphone with the same amount of memory introduced to the public? 3) Where there any other publicly available products that had the same amount of memory? 4) If so, when were they introduced to the market?

And the splashdown! Right at the final crescendo!

Help me track down a video of the moon landing set to Moonlight Sonata. A friend saw this on a PBS station, probably less than ten and more than four years ago. Inquires to my local PBS station got me nowhere, but I would love to track this down for him. Suggestions?

What's a good source of historical film clips on the web?

I'm looking to put together a DVD compilation as a small christmas present and was hoping to include a bunch of historical film clips. It might include things like the moon landing, Louis Armstrong, presidential speeches, anything and everything really from the significant to the minutiae of everyday life. Does anyone know of a good source for this sort of thing on the web? Would have to be free.
