Editorial Review from Product Description
It was a day that no one who lived through it will ever forget. A young and vibrant president shot dead on the streets of a major American city --- the fourth presidential assassination in the country's history. The assassination of President John F. Kennedy was also the first time that U.S. television networks went to 24-hour coverage of a news story. ABC News takes you back to November 22, 1963. Many televisions on the east coast were tuned in to "Father Knows Best" when the first special news bulletin broke in with a report that the President had been shot. Watch as the information that is familiar to us now was reported for the first time - the first eyewitness reports and the first time we learn the shots were fired from the Texas School Book Depository. You also see police display the rifle Lee Harvey Oswald used and the first interview with Abraham Zapruder, the bystander who shot the now famous video of the motorcade and assassination, but whose significance was not fully appreciated at the time.
