Apollo 13 “We’ve had a problem”

lunarmodule5 on YouTube has combined a simulation of the Apollo spacecraft with the flight directors loop (discussion in the control room), the air to ground loop (communication with the craft) and some nice footage from the control room as well as from space. This is the best presented version of the famous audio I’ve seen, allowing you to listen to the drama unfold step by step. It’s really interesting to listen to all these people frantically troubleshooting a variety of symptoms and how calm they keep when three peoples lives are very much at risk.
