TV marks the 40th year of Kennedy's death - and explores
In the week leading up to Nov. 22, more than a dozen
specials about former U.S. president John F. Kennedy will invite viewers
to encounter him from every vantage point on the 40th anniversary of his
You can step back and survey his role in a powerful
political dynasty on The Kennedys (PBS, Monday and Tuesday).
If for some reason you care, you can dally with admirers
such as Donald Trump and Jay Leno as they describe their shocked reactions
to that grim day in Dallas, on MSNBC's dumbed-down JFK: The Day That Changed
You can re-experience the tragedy by focusing on the
journalists who originally reported it. Through their memories as well
as with painstakingly compiled footage, CNN's President Kennedy Has Been
Shot (Sunday) and PBS's JFK: Breaking the News (check local listings)
track Kennedy's death, then, two days later, the killing of his collared
murder suspect on live TV.
In the process, both programs document media history
"With no preparation whatsoever," says Breaking
the News narrator Jane Pauley, those long-ago newscasters mobilized "the
most massive coverage of any event since the invention of television."
They gathered the country in a video vigil. And created a model for cable
news two decades later.
Between this pair of films, perhaps Breaking the News
has the edge in conveying how journalists responded when a one-day story
took on timeless gravity.
Particularly telling are extended excerpts that show
Jay Watson, program director at WFAA-TV in Dallas, as he is pressed into
unaccustomed on-air duty.
At one point, Watson manages to chain-smoke, monitor
a telephone for updates, and interview Abraham Zapruder, who by chance
had just made the most famous home movie of all time. "I got out
about a half-hour earlier to get a good spot to shoot some pictures,"
His 26-second, 8mm film - the only known visual record
of the full ambush - figures heavily in a trio of documentaries that re-examine
whether Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone or as part of a conspiracy. And,
befitting a debate that will likely never be resolved, the films arrive
at differing conclusions.
Fox News Channel's JFK: Case Not Closed (Sunday) supports
a conspiracy hypothesis. It disputes the "single bullet theory"
and interprets an audio transmission from a Dallas police motorcycle as
containing sounds from four gun shots, not three - which would prove the
existence of a second assailant in Dealey Plaza.
But Court TV's JFK: Investigation Reopened (Wednesday)
draws on high-tech analysis that accounts for how that single "magic"
bullet might have plausibly travelled through Kennedy, then struck Texas
governor John Connally in the front seat of their limousine.
This fascinating hour also means to debunk the police
tape with techniques that suggest the "gun shots" are random
noise - and the recording was made a full minute after the shooting was
Peter Jennings Reporting: The Kennedy Assassination -
Beyond Conspiracy (ABC Thursday), provides even more elaborate computer
simulations. This two-hour program reaches the same verdict: Oswald acted
Not that any amount of evidence, one way or another,
is likely to settle the question. Nor is this mystery ever likely to be
pried loose from assessments of the thousand days that went before.
"Kennedy's legacy is defined in part by the manner
of his passing," observes the splendid three-hour JFK: A Presidency
Revealed ( U.S. History Channel, Sunday).
But before his fateful trip to Dallas, Kennedy faced
the possibility of nuclear war with the Soviet Union no fewer than three
times. In the film, then Secretary of Defence Robert McNamara recalls
an October night during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis when he wondered
if he - and by extension the human race - would be alive a week later.
And three times Kennedy would confront the prospect of
sending federal troops to occupy southern states to protect the civil
rights of black Americans.
During his brief presidency, Kennedy set the U.S. on
a course for the moon. He altered fashion, refusing to wear a hat and
wearing his hair longish by the standards of that pre-Beatles era. With
his wife, Jackie, he was the arbiter of excellence, cool and glamour that
helped "create an illusion that later became known as Camelot."
But in the meantime, he struggled with a remarkable variety
of ailments and medications while maintaining a guise of health and vitality.
He had a family the world admired, yet he lived a secret life of extramarital
Veteran reporter Hugh Sidey, who covered Kennedy for
Time-Life publications, believes there was "a very good chance"
that news of his indiscretions "would have broken wide open sometime
in his second term, if not before, and he might have been forced out of
But, 40 years after Dallas, that's just one of countless
"He's frozen in our memories at the age of 46,"
says Kennedy biographer Robert Dallek. "So handsome, so articulate,
so witty, so charming, so charismatic. He was a man of exceptional promise."
Another valuable program, The Kennedy Tapes Revealed
(U.S. Bravo, Friday), draws on recollections recorded by Robert Kennedy,
the fallen president's brother and attorney general, as an oral history
after his death.
This intimate hour charts the Kennedy administration
from Bobby's perspective, as well as hearing from other observers including
Anthony Lewis and Arthur Schlesinger Jr., whom he had picked to interview
him for his taped memoirs.
At times on the tapes Bobby Kennedy is brutally direct,
as when he describes Lyndon Johnson, Kennedy's successor, as "a mean,
bitter and vicious animal in many ways."
But even in these private reflections, he is protective
of the brother he served so loyally, at one point dismissing rumours of
Kennedy's trysts as "ridiculous, on the face of it."
The world knows better now. Even so, John Kennedy's "enduring
appeal seems to transcend personal frailty," notes the History Channel's
A Presidency Revealed. One reason? "He spoke of an America of tolerance,
prospering in a world free from fear."
With Americans discovering new fears all the time, Kennedy
may seem more appealing than ever.
