First Orbit (Blu-ray release 2012-3-11) is the “real-time recreation of history’s first human space flight”.  “By matching the orbital path of the Space Station, as closely as possible, to that of Gagarin’s Vostok 1 spaceship and filming the same vistas of the Earth”, this video recreates what Yuri Gagarin had seen in his space flight in 1961.  I think this is a commendable effort.  I’d be honest and say that I did not watch it from the start to the end as it is inherently not very exciting.  However, by skipping through the video I can get an idea about what commercial space travel would show us in the not too distant future.  Best of all, this video can be watched in YouTube 1080p:
