1.0 out of 5 stars MISSING THE BEST PARTS November 22, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The version here, is missing the three "good" episodes -- the ones that aren't the same old clips we've seen for 40 years. "The Men Who Killed Kennedy, the Final Chapter" is the one you want.
If a version doesn't have;
. The Love Affair
. The Guilty Men
. The Smoking Gun
-- Then don't buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Parts 7-9 What They Don't Want You To See! January 19, 2005
Format:DVD
Parts 1-6 are great. But Parts 7-9 are a MUST SEE.

DO NOT BUY THIS, MAKE THEM OFFICIALLY RELEASE PARTS 7-9

THE FINAL CHAPTER:

Part 7: Smoking Guns: (The Secret Service failings and possible autopsy fraud and cover-up)

Part 8: Love Affair: (A Woman comes forward claiming to be Lee Harvey Oswald's mistress.)

Part 9: Guilty Men: (See the allegations that Lyndon B. Johnson had JFK killed.)

I own parts 7-9 and they are the best parts!

It's time we find out why JFK was killed and why our government continues to cover it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the Best Summary of JFK's Murder Available December 28, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I originally saw this series on The History Channel and was enthralled, disturbed and, ultimately, angry as hell.
This is the least sensational, most clearly presented documentary on the JFK killing I've ever seen. All of the people interviewed are credible--some you'll recognize--and the program, by the time you reach the fifth and final episode, has so completely destroyed the Warren Commission Report that you'll wonder how this outrageous cover-up has managed to survive this long.
This is first-class detective work, well-presented and--to boot--entertaining as hell. Every high school kid in America should be required to view this before graduating (I'm glad to see the teacher above is doing so!).
This quiet little documentary--done by the BBC--blasts away the Kennedy assassination myth more effectively than Stone's movie hoped to, as admirable as his attempts were.
And while anybody who's done any reading on the JFK matter is already familiar with who was probably behind it, this program for the first time makes a convincing case as to who the actual shooters were. The also manage to track down Woody Harrelson's dad in prison for an interview (he has been long considered by many to be one of the "three tramps" in Dealey Plaza that day; some even suspect he was one of the shooters).
Truly horrifying and compelling. A must-see. I own it, and I will show it to everybody I can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed Review March 17, 2004
Format:DVD
This DVD is a good overview of the assassination of Kennedy. True, it does focus on the conspiracy theories and it is not an unbiased look at the evidence; however, the interviews with people who have a lot to say are engrossing and the "evidence" produced is thought provoking.
There is no doubt that evidence exists to dispute the findings of the Warren Commission report on the assassination of President Kennedy. This DVD presents a lot of that evidence in a organized fashion. It is good to actually see the people interviewed who say the shots were coming from the grassy knoll. I liked looking at the photographic evidence that critics claim show a person (badge man) shooting from the knoll (I don't see anything). The DVD at least allows you to see the people and the evidence and make a lot of judgments for yourself.
A lot of the witnesses are not convincing to me, and a lot of the so called evidence just looks like junk. I have a natural tendency to distrust testimony from strippers (or former strippers) and I don't see what others say is clearly present in certain photographs. I am a lawyer (not a trial lawyer) so I suppose I look at evidence a little differently than most and probably take a more skeptical view, but I still like to see it myself and not let someone else tell me what something shows or who to believe.
I think the DVD does raise significant questions about the killing of the President as presented by the Warren Report on the assassination. I have read portions of the Warren Report and I have read a few books on this subject authored by both the critics and those who support the Commission's conclusions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye Opening August 26, 2002
Format:DVD
This is probably the most complete documentary available on the assasination of J.F.K.. This video leaves no doubt that there was a definate conspiracy to kill J.F.K. in Dallas. It also proves that Oswald was merely a patsy and had nothing to do at all with the shooting. It brings forward several new witnesses as well as proving a complete cover-up by the Dallas Police Department and the F.B.I.. A must have for anyone interested in the events of November 22,1963. Well worth the price, as it clocks in at a little over 6 hours! It takes a long look at all the evidence and features a ton of information. A MUST HAVE!

JFK assassination
Okay, better late than never. This A&E rebroadcast of a British series has a ton of controversy attached to it, but here's the short answer: Yes.
The series ran in 50 minute "chapters" from 1988 - 2003. There were 9 chapters in all. "The Truth Shall Make You Free" was the 6th... Read more
