Review for JFK: A Presidency Revealed
JFK: A Presidency Revealed
delves unflinchingly into the presidency of John F. Kennedy, examining the political crises, social unrest, and personal intricacies that marked his administration. What makes this three-part series stand out is its willingness to admit Kennedy's faults--in particular his troubled marriage, his infidelities, his illnesses, and his sometimes-excessive use of painkillers to cope with the pain of his bad back--as well as the missteps of his presidency, providing a strikingly balanced and human portrait of this all-too-often-mythologized president. Particularly revelatory is how the inexperience that resulted in the bungled Bay of Pigs operation led, in turn, to a far more skilled and careful handing of the Cuban missile crisis, in which the world came closer to nuclear war than ever before and perhaps ever since. A wealth of film, video, photographs, and previously unreleased secret recordings provide new insights into Kennedy's political and personal life (Kennedy was, as this documentary makes clear, the first president to really use the media to achieve his goals, launching an entirely new political forum). --Bret Fetzer

Review for The Men Who Killed Kennedy:
This artfully constructed five-part series offers chilling evidence that American democracy has become a convenient lie; that a conspiratorial coup d'état removed a sitting president and then hid that fact from the American people. This sounds like the stuff of wild-eyed paranoia, but these filmmakers did their homework well--interviews include levelheaded witnesses, suspicious government agents, and Dallas cops present in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963. Some of the "proof" (especially in Episode 2, "The Forces of Darkness") seems a bit far-fetched, but the sheer number of unexplained facts is riveting. An autopsy attendant describes a procedure botched by meddling Secret Service agents. A deaf-mute eyewitness shares his recollection of uniformed men hiding a rifle and leaving the site of the assassination unchallenged. Eisenhower's security chief, present at the shooting, discusses fatal safety lapses--as well as mysterious shots coming from the opposite direction of the Texas School Book Depository. District Attorney Jim Garrison points out that Lee Harvey Oswald, a Marine assigned to Russian reconnaissance, operated a "Communist" organization out of a government intelligence office. Senator Ralph Yarbrough, present in the motorcade, tells of Kennedy's order to recall the troops from Vietnam--an order rescinded by the Pentagon three days after his death. But the most powerful elements of this documentary are the most personal, as hardened cops confess to lasting nightmares, as senatorial investigators tearfully recall the moment they realized the official story did not match the facts, and as simple bystanders share their lasting grief at having witnessed the gory death of America's innocence. --Grant Balfour

I bought the Kennedy megaset to gain more information about America's first family. I am very glad that I made the purchase because it contains many programs that are also for sale on amazon but it was all together in one set at a better price! I would recommend this set to others because the programs are very well done.
