JFK Assassination: The Rare 1978 BBC Documentary

Copyright © January 4, 2014 Douglas W Jerving.
All Rights Reserved. Copyright on this page does not include the video itself, which was found by me on www.youtube.com, and is thereby assumed to be in the public domain until proven otherwise.

The following video is a documentary produced by the BBC in 1978 shortly after the United States' House Select Committee on Assassinations concluded that the Warren Report on the JFK assassination was not consistent with the facts. The video is one hour and 20 minutes long. It is choppy at times, and certainly not up to the standards of most modern documentary reporting. I have saved this video to my website simply because I am not sure how long it will remain on YouTube.

I realize some of the facts herein are disputed by various authorities on the subject. Most of those authors wrote their critiques prior to 2012 and 2013; i.e., prior to the November 22, 2013 fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of John F Kennedy. Their opinions have weight, but they are not up to date with the latest evidences. As this fiftieth anniversary approached, a host of authors with impeccable credentials began to come forward. These new authors tended to be persons intimately involved with the key players in the events of 1963, or very close confidants of said intimates. Their new revelations severely cripple, or completely bury forever any lingering faith in the Warren Report.

In my next article on this subject I will offer a bibliography of some of those new authors, along with a short commentary on each. It takes time to put this stuff together. For now I hope the video below will suffice.

If you are not able to view the video above it is because of complex browser differences which I am still trying to figure out. I am still working on a resolution to this problem. My apologies. But here is the link to the video on Youtube:
