September 11th... Pearl Harbour... the assassination of JFK. Days that forever changed America. But the Kennedy assassination is different: 50 years after it happened, most Americans think they don't know who did it. Now History has conducted the largest nationwide survey ever attempted on the topic to learn exactly what the country believes. Who do Americans suspect was really responsible for JFK's death? It's an entirely new way to look at the assassination--through the eyes of those to whom it matters most: the American people. Premiere experts Vincent Bugliosi, Max Holland, Gerald Posner, Robert Groden, Jefferson Morley and others will break down why each leading theory has captured the American imagination, where the evidence supports it, and where it comes up short. The entire range of conspiracy theories will be examined, from the mainstream to the fringe, and the big questions will finally be answered: who does America think really killed JFK--and why?
This special seeks to explain the enigmatic Oswald using a brand new approach. No other documentary has exclusively traced Oswald's actions in the minutes, hours and days following the events in Dallas. By shifting the focus on that November weekend, we're able to tell a familiar story in an unfamiliar way, providing a refreshing new perspective on Oswald himself, as well as on the Kennedy assassination. Ultimately, we will lay bare the suspect's final two days, revealing why the Dallas police were convinced they had Kennedy's killer. On his way to the police station after his arrest at the Texas Theater, an officer asked Oswald whether or not he killed the president. Oswald snidely replied: "You find out for yourself." Lee Harvey Oswald: 48 Hours to Live eagerly takes up Oswald's 50-year-old challenge.
Few events have been more scrutinized than the minutes and hours following the fatal bullets fired by Lee Harvey Oswald on Nov. 22, 1963. The assassination of President John F. Kennedy has been analyzed repeatedly from every angle and every perspective, but this leaves us with no real insight into his humanity. JFK: The Final Hours, narrated by Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Bill Paxton, takes both in-depth and birds-eye views of the final day of Kennedy's life through firsthand accounts.
When President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas on November 22nd, 1963, history changed forever. Now, newly released government tapes offer a gripping and unique insight into what happened that fateful day. They tell of a government unable to keep pace with an international tragedy unfolding at breakneck speed, an information vacuum that saw the highest levels of the American government relying on press reports for news, and the dramatic planning to receive the body of the slain President back to Washington from Air Force One in Dallas. Combined with audio recordings from the Dallas Police Force, and the testimonies and radio recordings of reporters who were there that day, the film reveals a riveting, behind the scenes, story of a presidential assassination, a police manhunt for a killer on the loose, and the vital role of local pressmen in keeping the world informed on one America's most profound days of reckoning.
