Satellite Schedules for Kennedy Documentaries

In remembrance of the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s death, the Voice of America is airing two special programs that examine Kennedy’s legacy.

John F. Kennedy: A Legacy Remembered is a 30-minute program that revisits one of the country's darkest days through exclusive conversations with witnesses, journalists, historians, and family members.

Years of Lightning, Day of Drums was produced by the former U.S. Information Agency in the 1960s. The 90-minute documentary is narrated by Gregory Peck.  It includes extensive excerpts from President Kennedy's speeches, including his inaugural address.
