Restored Apollo footage NASA briefing

Apollo 11 bootprint
I got a press release from NASA saying that they will be holding a press conference at 11:00 Eastern time (15:00 GMT) where they will present newly restored video of the Apollo 11 moonwalk. The conference will be televised on NASA TV.

Is this the vaunted “lost footage” we’ve heard so much about? I don’t know. But I’ll be watching the conference to see what’s what.
