Episode Summary

The Lost JFK Tapes: The Assassination
For nearly 45 years, hundreds of hours of news footage and radio reports quietly languished in Dallas-first kept under wraps by the local news stations who owned them, then in the vault of a museum dedicated to preserving the memory of the day John F. Kennedy was killed. To mark the anniversary of JFK's assassination on November 22, 1963, National Geographic reveals some of this rarely-seen archival footage that has been digitally captured and assembled into a detailed timeline. Included is footage capturing the real-time horror of parade-goers who witnessed the killing, the out-of-breath local anchors reporting the breaking news bulletin, the priest who describes administering the president's last rites and the ongoing, on-air speculation over who fired the fatal shots.moreless
