My personal speculative theory is that they faked some of the films and stills in case the astronaut's cameras failed, in order to bolster the PR effort to win further funding from Congress. Of course the cameras actually worked but they released the bogus stuff anyway.
Haven't heard the same backdrops-different missions claim before.

The Van Allen belts radiation isn't strong enough to harm the astronauts or fog the films.
Nixon wouldn't have shed any tears if his predecessor JFK's pet project had failed.
They didn't lose or destroy so much kit that they couldn't have gone.
I've seen one hoax documentary that drew on the ability to cook up artificial rocks in labs, doesn't mean they did though. As for missing rocks, probably got nicked.
If all the missions were faked there are thousands of photos to be explained, all the hardware and even footprints photographed by Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and the findings of thousands of pages of preliminary science reports to be argued over. Considering all the factors involved in hoaxing all the landings it would probably be easier to have actually gone and done them.

At times like this, it's always good to re-link this video, IMHO

I'm not usually a fan of Mitchell and Webb, but that's pretty a sharp demolition of the CT.
