On This Day

The BBC has a series "On this day" where they list notable events that have occured on this day in history. Today is July 20 and the BBC list has stuff about Cyprus in 1974, Hitler in 1944, the IRA in 1982 etc. But as you can see from this screen capture they've omitted one story. Landing on the moon was clearly no big deal.
What about 1969?

Update: This appears to be because it occured "tomorrow" British time
