Good Introduction to RFK
6 April 2001 | by (Fort Worth, Texas) – See all my reviews

Does this miniseries only paint Robert F. Kennedy as a hero? Yes. But perhaps that is because they had a good source subject. RFK, unlike many politicians, grew throughout his career.

If you are interested in getting an overview of his life, this miniseries hits many of the important milestones in his life.

Start there. Then read "To Seek a Newer World". You might just encounter one of the most remarkable "what ifs" of the later 20th century (or as the tagline of the series goes, "Of what might have been").
