JAXA and NHK have just (April, 2008) released a new pair of videos from the high-definition television camera aboard Kaguya. Here is an excerpt.
The third movie is an excerpt from "2001: A Space Odyssey", a 1968 science fiction film directed by Stanley Kubrick, written by Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke.
Note: Earthrise and Earthset don't really happen on the moon. Cause the moon has always its face fixed towards the earth and doesn't rotate, However if you have a satellite going around it, you might see the above scene (though not a real earthrise/set). That's what I meant by earthrise and earthset.
