Too Much Sun
The Apollo TV shows were not without setbacks. During the third transmission from Apollo 12, as astronaut Alan Bean was adjusting the camera on the tripod to face the Lunar Module, he accidentally pointed the camera at the sun, damaging the camera tube. Thinking that there was a problem with the color wheel, Bean hit the camera to try and get it to work. Unfortunately, that made things worse, and the abrupt end to the transmissions overshadowed the first color TV pictures from the lunar surface.
