Somewhere there is (or was) a web site with a large collection of video clips commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Viking landings. I think it was created in connection with a conference held at Langley to mark the occasion.
It includes, among many other interesting features, lots of archival footage of team members' reactions to the landings, as well as thoughtful comments from the participants 30 years later. It's an impressive collection of material, which would take hours to view completely, and it might provide the kind of "reliving" you're looking for, if it's still online.
Unfortunately I don't have a url, and wasn't able to locate it with google just now. This page discusses the conference and contains some video clips, but the site I remember had many more clips, covering a wide variety of topics related to the mission.
