The doctor who tried to save him. The Secret Service agent who was seconds too late. The man wrongly accused of his murder. And the woman who unwittingly sheltered an assassin. The death of JFK has inspired thousands of books and debates over the last 50 years, but the stories of the people there on that day have gone largely untold...until now. Experience November 22, 1963 as it has never been presented before, in this minute-by-minute account of that day, narrated by Academy Award-winner Kevin Spacey, and brought to life through rarely seen footage and rarely heard testimonies.

    Sid Davis

    Read Full Bio
    Sid Davis was a reporter covering JFK's Texas trip. He accompanied the president on all of his appointments, and on the day of the shooting he was there for breakfast in Fort Worth, the arrival at Love Field, the motorcade, and the frantic hours at Parkland Hospital. When Kennedy's body arrived at the White House later, he was also there, recording it all in a notebook he still has today.
