Default LIVE from the Moon?

I was wondering, how come we been many time on the Moon and never left a live video transmitter there, so people can tune in and watch the Moon's surface some times?
I think, it would be interesting?

I doubt it changes very much, except for the shadows, of course. What you would see in current photos would look just the same as it looked in the old photos...

I guess, getting power for the camera and transmitter to transmit for years maybe was a problem back than?

The Moon only gets visitors every 800,000,000 years on average, so there isn't much for a camera to record.
