A Piece of the Moon (2008)
Have you ever looked up at the Moon and
thought, I want to own a piece of that?
Well over 280,000 acres of it have been sold in
Britain by Cornish businessman Francis P Williams. But what gives him
the right to do this, and why do so many people want to "own" a rock in
the sky that they can't even get to?
A Piece of the Moon tells the stories of people
who've bought land on the Moon and the businessman who's sold it to
them. Freed from the rules and restrictions of Earth, the Moon is a
place where it seems anything is possible, and anything could be real.
We meet a family who can't afford to live together who are holding out
for their Moon property to make their fortunes, a builder whose lunar
land is a new home to escape to when the Sun expands, and a Swedish man
who's planning to build a small cottage on the Moon within the next 10
