Parick Moore favourite picky of Alan Shepard

This is one for the oldies here.
Back in the early 1970s Patrick Moore discussed Apollo14 on his regular show. During the program he showed a photograph of astronaut Alan Shepard on the way to the moon. The picture was taken inside the Command Module, the picture was of his head and face, in profile, and illuminated by the sun through a window.
The picture was stunning.
Patrick said it was among his most favourite images up till that time. I wished I had written to him long ago when he was still with us. I have been trying for a long time to find the image on the net but with no luck. Surprisingly trawling through the NASA archives turned up nothing.
Has anybody seen or remember this picture? Its been about 45 years since I saw it and never forgot it. Any help finding it would be much appreciated.
