This instrumental jam session was used for television on the evening of the first moonlanding on July 20, 1969. The program was used by the BBC in between the coverage of the actual moonlanding, and was called “But What If It’s Made Of Green Cheese”. The theme was the first verse and the coda, with various actors reading quotes and poetry about the moon over. The rest of the program was information, discussions and sketches. Later in the show, “Moonhead” was performed uninterrupted.  The music can be heard on the bootlegs “With/Without” and “Wavelenghts”. The song has also been known as “Trip On Mars”.
