Conspiracy?

Who Killed Martin Luther King Jr.?

On April 4, 1968, a sniper gunned down Martin Luther King Jr. as he

stood on a motel balcony in Memphis, Tennessee. Charges of cover-ups

and government complicity were heard almost immediately--suspicions

that haven't waned with time. Several versions have passed for the

"truth" of King's assassination--from the "official" story in '68 with

small-time criminal James Earl Ray as lone assassin; Ray's later

assertion that he was framed by "Raul", the true killer; to the '78

House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) report that claimed

Ray acted on behalf of a conspiracy. And there's a theory that federal

government agencies were out to get King--and they had greater

motivation to do so than James Earl Ray. We revisit the murder--one of

the least explicable of the assassinations that rocked the '60s.

The Kennedy Assassination: Beyond Conspiracy

No other murder in history has produced as much speculation as the

assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Forty years after he was

fatally shot, more than 70 percent of polled Americans believe there

was a conspiracy and that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone. In this

2-hour special, ABC News Anchor Peter Jennings takes a fresh look at

the assassination, the evidence, the various and many theories, and an

exact computer simulation of the famous Abraham Zapruder film that

offers surprising results.

Kennedys: The Curse of Power

Traces the Kennedy clan's calamities that occurred on the rise to

power--from immigration from Ireland up to John Kennedy Jr.'s tragic

death in 1999. The first hour sees the loss of Joe Jr. in WWII and the

assassinations of JFK and RFK. Hour two witnesses Ted's downfall and

role as surrogate father to a fatherless generation.

Presidential Limo

The 1961 Lincoln Continental convertible limousine

JFK rode in when assassinated in 1963 was, for a time

a true crime scene. Surprisingly, the car was used by

presidents for years after Kennedy's death.

Investigating History

The JFK Assassination.

How does forensic science help resolve questions about the JFK

assassination? With the help of a group of scientists and researchers

with access to the evidence in the case, Investigating History looks

at new information that examines which theories are believable, and

which are not. Specifically, the experts looked at the acoustic

evidence from the radio of one of the motorcycle policemen in the

motorcade and the number of shots that were fired; at the reliability

of autopsy X-rays of JFK's skull; at the investigation that concluded

that Oswald was the lone assassin; at the new evidentiary support for

the "magic bullet" theory; and more.

THE JFK ASSASSINATION (Monday, November 22 at 10 pm ET/PT):

How does forensic science help resolve questions about the JFK

assassination? With the help of a group of scientists and researchers with access to the evidence in the case, INVESTIGATING HISTORY looks at new information that examines which theories are believable, and which are not.

-Experts look at the reliability of autopsy X-rays of JFK's skull;

-At the investigation that concluded that Oswald was the lone assassin;

-At the new evidentiary support for the "magic bullet" theory; and more.

Acoustical evidence, which has been analyzed:

-Examination of the acoustic evidence from the radio of one of the

motorcycle policemen in the motorcade and the number of shots that were fired.

-A new investigation maintains there are five shots on the tape from an open microphone hanging on a motorcycle policeman's vehicle.

Famed forensic scientist Dr. Henry Lee wades into the investigation by

calling for a return of evidence relating to the "crime scene":

-The limousine carrying John Kennedy, Jackie, John Connolly and his wife.

-Items were picked up as souvenirs and may be resting in basements of

private homes around the country. Example: windshield, which was damaged by a bullet.

Featuring footage from The Cyril H., Wecht Institute of Forensic Science and Law, National Symposium on the 40th Anniversary of the JFK

Assassination.

Executive Producer and television journalist Bill Kurtis returns with an all-new season of intriguing investigations that explore some of history's most perplexing puzzles in the weekly one-hour series INVESTIGATING HISTORY on The History Channel.

The Cuban Missile Crisis Declassified

In October 1962, the world tottered on the brink of nuclear war. The

Soviet Union's Premier Nikita Khrushchev had placed missiles in Cuba

to defend it from unexpected American invasion. When U.S. intelligence

provided President John F. Kennedy with proof, he demanded that they

be removed, risking the first nuclear exchange between the

superpowers. Now, new information reveals just how fragile

communication between Moscow and Washington was and how little each

side understood of the other.
