JFK: A Presidency Revealed, Part 1.

President John F. Kennedy's legacy is largely defined by the permanent scar his assassination left on America's psyche. This 3-part analysis reveals the saga of an amazing man who led the charge in a technologically advancing world, yet was restricted by personal obstacles, national crises, and international challenges. Using JFK's private records, phone logs, medical reports, and secret recordings of staff meetings, we expose a flawed giant who dominated his time through sheer determination.

JFK: A Presidency Revealed, Part 2.

Using previously unreleased images, including Kennedy Family home movies and photos from Life magazine's archive, combined with the 35th President's private records, phone logs, medical reports, and secret recordings of staff meetings, we trace John Fitzgerald Kennedy's journey from privileged roots as son of a wealthy Irish-American entrepreneur to groundbreaking presidency--as both the first Catholic and youngest man ever to be elected to America's highest office.

Classroom

JFK: A Presidency Revealed, Part 3.

To help capture the essence of the man and the times in which he lived and led, we deliver in-depth interviews with a broad spectrum of experts and luminaries, including administration insiders Arthur Schlesinger and Ted Sorensen; Egon Bahr, Willy Brandt's press secretary, and Dr. Sergei Khrushchev, Nikita's son; historians Robert Dallek, Evan Thomas, and Aleksandr Fursenko; presidential journalists Sander Vanocur, Hugh Sidey, and Ben Bradlee; and JFK friends Paul "Red" Fay and John Seigenthaler.

As alwyas, many thanks Dennis. I have found by watching eveything that one can on JFK's life and death we learn a bit more of the true nature of all of this, even when that is not what the producer intended. Critical thinking applies to documentaries just as it does to books, posts and the like.
