High speed footage of the Saturn V's engines starting and lift-off with a very informative technical commentary.

In my previous life as a computer games journalist I have meet (early nineties at ECTS) some guy from US who was working on Apollo mission start simulation. Basically it was just a start sequence, as seen from the capsule inside by the crew - with all turbines/engines/whatevers starting in the right order and displaying/blinking lights/messages about their state, plus the noise. It couldn't make a good game, but seeing it was quite an experience.
