As we watched and listened I noticed a few times Neil mentioned that from the space craft as they traveled to the moon they could not see any stars.
It's easier when the ISS is in the Earth's shadow, as in this photo:

Are they able to see the stars or other planets from ISS?
Niel Armstrong and the other astronauts could not see the stars even as they passed behind the moon in its shadow.
I have not heard him say that. I've heard him say that he could not see stars while on the surface of the Moon or while in orbit on the dayside of the Moon.
Even from the space capsule on the way to the moon he said it was totally black and the only thing visible was the Earth, Sun and Moon.
I misunderstood when you said this:
Not one of the pictures and videos shown had no stars in it.
In any case, all of the landings were on the dayside of the Moon. I don't know why there would have been any attempt to photograph stars while on the nightside of the Moon, the handheld Hasselblads were not well suited to the task.
Is there absolutely no way for NASA or any others, to photograph or look at the dark side of the Moon to see what is over there.
