Quote
The Lost JFK Tapes: The Assassination premieres on Monday, November 23, 2009, at 9 PM ET/PT on National Geographic Channel.

Certain images are etched in our mind's eye, none more than the grainy Zapruder film that revealed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas.

Many of us still remember Walter Cronkite's newscast announcing the death of JFK, and of tales of Jackie Kennedy's bloodstained pink suit; the infamous Zapruder grainy 8 mm color home movie of the president being struck; toddler John Jr. saluting his father's casket -- poignant images that symbolize the nation's horrific loss of a beloved president.

To mark the anniversary of JFK's assassination on November 22, 1963, National Geographic Channel has combed through hundreds of hours of news footage, radio reports, audio recordings and home movies not widely seen that captured history as it was chaotically unfolding and has assembled them together to retell the events of that day.

The Lost JFK Tapes: The Assassination allows us to better understand the chaos, shock, horror and resolve of a nation during one of the 20th century's most defining moments, as it happened.

One reporter's affecting words that day may still strike a chord in a generation looking back today: "Mr. President, may we say one last goodnight ... we can still see your bright smile and your vigorous stride .... Good night, Mr. President, good night."

This unique eyewitness material was first stored by local news stations in Dallas/Fort Worth and then preserved by The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, which is dedicated to chronicling the life, death and legacy of President Kennedy.

Now this rarely seen archival footage has been electronically restored and assembled into a timeline in the two-hour documentary special The Lost JFK Tapes: The Assassination, premiering Monday, November 23, 2009, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on the National Geographic Channel.

This close-up view features film of the limited security surrounding Kennedy as he waded into crowds upon arrival in Dallas, as well as his chilling remarks the morning of the assassination.

It also captures the real-time horror of parade-goers who witnessed the killing; the out-of-breath local newsmen reporting the breaking news bulletin; the ongoing on-air speculation over who fired the fatal shots; the priest who describes administering last rites to the president; and investigators swarming inside the sixth floor Texas School Book Depository after shots rang out -- with a TV photographer following their actions.

In addition, the documentary reveals the tense drama of Lee Harvey Oswald beyond the infamous shooting scene -- how Oswald was paraded in front of reporters for a press conference held at Dallas police headquarters; how Jack Ruby was able to get close to him without difficulty; how the chaos continued after his shooting as his body was placed in an ambulance -- all caught on camera.

This rare footage, along with the home movies, radio reports and audio recordings, gives viewers the experience of seeing history unfold before their eyes in an unexpected version of an iconic event -- the definitive record of the footage available.

"While some of this footage has been seen before, I have never seen it put together in such a riveting, compelling manner, which truly captures the drama of what happened in Dallas and the effect it had on the whole nation," commented Gary Mack, curator of The Sixth Floor Museum. "Watching this film, you feel like you are actually transported back to that fateful day, in real time, and witnessing history live."

Some of the events the film portrays in minute-by-minute detail include:

8:45 AM, FORT WORTH, TEXAS.

President Kennedy leaves the Hotel Texas in Fort Worth, where he spent his last night, and addresses the parking lot crowd across the street. We'll hear excerpts from his last speech at a Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce breakfast, where he jokes about being the man who accompanies the fashionable Mrs. Kennedy, saying, "Nobody wonders what Lyndon and I wear!"

11:40 AM, DALLAS LOVE FIELD.

Watch local coverage as Air Force One touches down at Dallas Love Field and a radiant Jackie Kennedy emerges in her iconic pink suit. Follow Kennedy's motorcade from Love Field in a parade through the downtown streets of Dallas -- the sidewalks packed with about 200,000 well-wishers. Robert Huffaker, a reporter for a local station, described the scene at the time as "A completely overwhelming welcome for the president. There was no danger whatsoever ...."

12:30 PM. SHOTS FIRED, DEALEY PLAZA.

Little did Huffaker know that just minutes later, after Kennedy's motorcade turned into Dealey Plaza, three shots would ring out, fatally wounding the president. What began as a day of patriotic fervor turned immediately into a day of "indescribable horror."

Hear from shell-shocked parade-goers, including Abraham Zapruder, the man who shot an 8 mm color home movie considered the most "complete" footage of the assassination, who describes on local television what he saw, saying, "I heard a shot and [President Kennedy] slumped to the side like this.

Then I heard another shot or two ... and I saw his head practically open up, all blood and everything .... That's about all. I'm just sick." In an interview with kids on her lap, another spectator, Gayle Newman, describes the dire scene, saying, "[President Kennedy] grabbed his ear and blood just started gushing out. And my husband said quick get down and I grabbed the baby and we ran."

Shortly after 1:30 p.m., local reporter Bill Hampton announces, "It's official now, the president is dead. Women here in shock, some fainted. Grown men, Secret Service men standing by the emergency room, tears streaming down their face."

1:15 PM. MANHUNT BEGINS.

Watch as investigators are led to the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository Building where Lee Harvey Oswald, a 24-year-old admitted pro-communist, was apparently reportedly waiting for the president. In mere minutes, when a rifle and emptied shells are discovered, the manhunt for the president's assassin begins. Within 35 minutes, a police car reports by radio that the driver is on the way to headquarters with the suspect.

2:15 PM. LYNDON JOHNSON SWORN IN.

At 2:38 p.m, Judge Sarah T. Hughes of Dallas swears in Vice President Lyndon Johnson as president with Jackie Kennedy at his side, still wearing her bloodstained suit.

Listen as Johnson places a private phone call from Air Force One to Kennedy's mother, Rose, to offer his condolences. Five days later at a joint session of Congress, Johnson would state, "All I have, I would have given gladly, not to be standing here today. No words are sad enough to express our sense of loss."

AFTERMATH: Viewers will see news reporters camp out at Dallas police headquarters to get the latest information on Oswald, who is paraded back and forth before the press and repeatedly requests legal representation.

Listen in on the infamous Midnight Press Conference and later see nightclub owner Jack Ruby, Oswald's eventual killer, lurking in the police hallway as Oswald is escorted through. Two days later, on November 24, watch as Oswald is about to be transferred to the county jail and Jack Ruby brazenly shoots him in the stomach on live television.

La période de temps couverte va de quelques jours avant l'assassinat jusqu'au années 90 avec Oliver Stone et son film et le fameux Assassination Archives and Review Board...

Les sites de torrents deviennent de plus en plus rares... Les mesures anti-piratages deviennent de plus en plus efficaces... Un de mes sites préférés était mininova.org... Mininova est rentré dans le rang suite à un risque de mesures pénales totalisant 5 millions d'Euros...

je me suis procuré JFK: The Lost Tapes... Il est disponible sur DVD au Canada depuis mars 2010...

J'ai visionné le document... Un peu comme Three Shots That Changed America, mais la période de temps couverte va du vendredi 22 novembre 1963 au lundi 24... Sensiblement sur le même mode, on laisse les images d'époque parler, pour le meilleur ou le pire...

Il est étonnant de voir le nombre de "suspects" qui ont été arrêtés avant qu'on mette la main sur le bon gars...

:lol:
