4. The Kennedy Assassination: 24 Hours After
October 18, 2009
In 2009, 46 years after he was shot, JFK will be gone for as long as he was alive. While the moments and hours after his tragic assassination were some of the most formative and important for our country, that story has rarely, and only partially, been told. For the first time, using never-before-seen transcripts only recently made public, this film pieces together the 24-hour period after those fateful shots were fired. The timeline reveals startling new information about the death of the president and the dramatic transfer of power to his successor, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson. From new details about when JFK really died, to the truth behind LBJ's oath of office photo on Air Force One, The Kennedy Assassination: 24 Hours After uncovers an unfamiliar story born out of one of the most crucial days in American history.

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.

President John F. Kennedy's legacy is largely defined by the permanent scar his assassination left on America's psyche; creating a vivid memory that refuses to fade. By looking past our now-mythical recollections, JFK: A Life Revealed, presents the story of a remarkable man whose assassination was merely the final moment of his remarkable life. Using the 35th President's private records, phone logs, medical reports, and secret recordings of meetings with his White House staff, our story will expose Kennedy as a flawed giant who dominated his time though sheer determination.

July 6, 2011
Through remarkable home movies, gathered from archives and attics and now seen for the first time, The Lost Kennedy Home Movies tells the story of the children of Joseph and Rose Kennedy as they grew up in the 1930s and '40s and later burst into the national spotlight during the political careers of John, Robert and Ted Kennedy. The special concludes in November 1963, with scenes of the last weekend John and Jackie Kennedy spent with Caroline and John, Jr., just two weeks before JFK's assassination in Dallas. The extremely rare home movies, transferred to HD, create a revealing and emotional portrait of the "first generation" Kennedy family, with warmth and humor, in moments of sports and leisure, and in scenes of reflection and exploration. Also featured is behind-the-scenes footage of the family at their Hyannis Port and Palm Beach homes, and on trips to Europe and Asia, as well as never-before-seen home movies filmed by Robert and Ethel Kennedy in the early 1950s.
