This is something I had been meaning to recommend to my book buddy Katherine as she and her husband work in the space industry. It's an oldie, released in 2000.
I was reading about the accuracy of the set and story line and evidently the dish control room was almost identical to the real thing from the 1960's. The staff from that era stated they felt they stepped back in time when entering the set. There was old NASA equipment included as it was left behind by the American consultants and staff. The reason for that was it was too heavy to ship back.
Sam Neill and Patrick Warburton are the big names in this movie. You'll certainly recognize Warburton's distinctive voice. Makes me want to watch it again, it's been ages.
The old dish control module is on display at the Parkes museum, should you ever take a trip that way and have an interest.
