TV: The Lost Bullet and more


Television acknowledges the 48th anniversary of the John F. Kennedy assassination this year with three documentaries, only one of which is new.

The History Channel and National Geographic Channel are both offering up reruns of 2003's Beyond Conspiracy and 2010's The Lost JFK Tapes – programs worth watching.

The new documentary, JFK: The Lost Bullet, produced by Robert Stone (Oswald’s Ghost), examines Max Holland’s 2007 theory that Oswald fired his first shot several seconds before Abraham Zapruder began filming the Kennedy limousine, and consequently, Zapruder’s infamous film did not capture the entire shooting sequence as previously believed.

The basis of Holland’s theory was that he believed that more earwitnesses thought the last two shots were closer together in time than the first two. This and many other aspects of Holland’s theory have been examined and debunked on the pages of this blog over the last four years.

The Lost JFK Tapes: The Assassination

To mark the anniversary of JFK's assassination hundreds of hours of news footage, radio reports, audio recordings and home movies have been released that captured history as it was chaotically unfolding. This unique eyewitness material was first stored by local news stations in Dallas/Fort Worth and then in the vault of The 6th Floor Museum, which is dedicated to helping others understand the day Kennedy was killed.
