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.
The Kennedy Assassination: 24 Hours After
The moments and hours after JFK’s tragic assassination were some of the most formative and important for the U.S., but the true 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 the shots were fired. The timeline reveals startling new information about the death of the President and the traumatic 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 shocking days in American history.
A Personal Story - Part One
Youthful and charismatic, John Fitzgerald Kennedy inspired America with a renewed sense of pride and confidence. A war hero, respected Senator and author of the Pulitzer Prizewinning Profiles in Courage, the dashing and handsome young Kennedy regarded life as a race against boredom. Experience the pivotal moments of his life through archival footage and interviews with esteemed journalists, White House insiders and members of the family.
A Personal Story - Part Two
JFK was the President of a new generation. He spoke of new frontiers, pushed Americans into space, even to the moon. After his death we came to realise that President Kennedy pushed the limits of propriety as well. Though fallible and flaw-filled, many still mourn JFK’s death and wonder what could have been.
Bay of Pigs Declassified
The Bay of Pigs fiasco marked the first foreign policy defeat for the new Kennedy administration and the first time a CIA covert operation had been exposed to public scrutiny. More than one hundred U.S. backed invaders died at the Bay of Pigs and more than one thousand were captured. Kennedy called the invasion “the worst experience of my life”. Military and political analysts called it “the perfect failure”. It was one of the most extraordinary debacles of the Cold War. Here, we look at the untold history of the Bay of Pigs and its importance on the evolution of covert operations, the Cuban Missile Crisis and recent U.S. relations with Castro's regime.

Granted extraordinary access to formerly classified documents, photos and other artifacts, they discover that some theories simply cannot be true, while others seem increasingly likely.
