I thoroughly enjoyed the 8 segments (27 minutes each for a total of 215 minutes) of JFK's private and political life. However, the info on the Amazon website stated that the length of this dvd was 583 minutes, which, I discovered later, turned out to be incorrect, as it contained only 215 minutes, meaning that 368 minutes were missing! I contacted Amazon & explained this & was able to return my dvd & was not charged for it.(Thank you, Amazon!) I will reorder the combination dvd/blue ray which DOES include the missing minutes. The extra info that totals up to 583 minutes is described ONLY on the dvd/blue ray site. When I ordered the dvd version, none of this info was there, which led me to assume that the 8 segments themselves would total 583 minutes. This info needs very much to be corrected! For anyone interested in seeing all 583 minutes, order the dvd/blue ray combination. The dvd does not have even half the minutes of the blue ray version. I'm so disappointed that dvds are now not including many or any extras on their discs. We have to buy the blue ray version (higher priced, of course) to get this.

PROS.... A good amount of unseen photos and usually unseen segments of famous speeches (*unseen meaning "I" haven't seen them in any previous docs I have seen and I have seen quite a few, but not all). Good overview of the administration.
CONS....too few interviewee's (only 3 in whole series) and those that are did have a remote connection to firsthand knowledge of the events... not the most dynamic or engaging doc on this subject... not too fussy about the narrator....very little pre-presidential coverage...reuses same stills/footage throughout series. Not crazy about the actual title of the series itself.
If you have seen many previous Kennedy docs then this might be a disappointment. If you have little knowledge of the Kennedy administration then it is informative. If you are going to have only one or very few Kennedy docs in your possession, there are better ones out there to pick from.
*The bonus disc is worth the price of purchase: it contains:
- a vintage B&W Secret Service sponsered newsreel about the "facts" of the assassination with amazing footage of Dealy Plaza and the school book depository shortly after the events.
- B&W Nixon/Kennedy debate
- a (30 min approx) colour coverage of the entire funeral event in Washington.
- lastly there is a John Ford 1971 "Produced" doc on Vietnam which is a very bias pro-intervention view of the events with Chuck Heston narrating, but still is an interesting time capsule of the time period and the struggle to make sense of a sense-less conflict which at that point was still raging.
Overall : 6 out of 10

I've had a lifelong fascination with John F. Kennedy dating back to the early 90's when I was a wee kindergarten student. Even with the passage of time, my interest in the man, his presidency, and his death has never waned, though periodically it loses its draw in the wake of circumstance or other interests. Nevertheless, it always returns, and with the 50th anniversary of that day in Dallas, Kennedy fans have an abundance of material to choose from, ranging from new biographies, fresh political analysis as to what kind of a leader he was, and of course, a glut of books promoting varying theories or debunking them. Also in the offing are several new video productions, this being one of them.

Admittedly, I was a bit hesitant to purchase this based upon the low price, since documentary collections running at low cost tend to be rushed cash grabs, but the lure of Blu-Ray finally pulled me in. I regret not having read some of the reviews in more depth prior to purchase, as my reaction reflects the general consensus of the majority of viewers.

Before I begin griping about the faults, I will praise the film for offering some footage I have not seen (a notable example is the footage regarding NASA, or the Cape Canaveral memorial service following the assassination), and for a somewhat decent production value given what was a likely limited budget.

However, the warts overshadow the beauty here: the footage and imagery ranges from being very gorgeous to incredibly poor (a given with historic stock footage, but do not expect it to appear cleaned up like you may see on PBS or BBC).

With all the attention being paid to the 50th anniversary of JFK's passing, many products will be on the market. This Blu-ray did have an interesting supplementary section, including a Secret Service re-creation film and scenes of the funeral. The main body of the Blu-ray was very disappointing - utilizing very poor period video and lacklustre commentary. A very poor effort.

I was quite disappointed by JFK-A New World Order. In short, there was nothing in this DVD has hasn't been included in so many other programs about JFK, and most of the commentary was provided by some historian that I've never heard of, not that he didn't have some interesting things to say. The footage used was ok, but not great, and far clearer versions of the footage are found on other DVDs and TV programs. Good have been much better.
