JFK: 3 Shots That Changed America

Just hours before his death, John F. Kennedy appeared before a crowd in Fort Worth, Texas to honour the freedoms of America in what would be his final speech. Although the Zapruder film - a silent, 8mm home movie of the presidential motorcade through Dealey Plaza - is the most complete visual recording of JFK's assassination, it is just part of a vast record of sights and sounds captured on camera that day. This History Channel special uses unique, rarely seen or heard footage to document the Kennedy assassination and nearly 50 years of speculation and controversy that changed America. Home movies from eyewitnesses, Dallas police dispatch radio recordings, and raw news footage provide a shocking, unflinching look at the assassination of the President and the days that followed while examining the aftermath, and the enduring controversies, that emerged as subsequent generations of Americans struggled to comprehend the sudden murder of an unforgettable leader.
