- This program produced by Radio Moscow recounts the first manned spaceflight by Yuri Gagarin on April 12th, 1961 aboard the Vostok 1. The recording includes audio from his first transmission, reflections and tributes from Nikita Khrushchev and other scientists and a short history of the Soviet space program. A reporter reads an interview with Gagarin describing his experience in completing his mission. This is followed by a translated panel of "two scientists and an engineer [speaking] about such difficulties of manned space flight as the strains at take off, the state of weightlessness in orbital flight, and reentry." The program concludes with a profile of Yuri Gagarin's family and their reactions during his mission.
