Tribute to JFK following Assassination
Janet White from Tacoma WA
20 October 2007
TW3 usually featured hilarious but biting satire. David Frost brought
his very British view of happenings in the news from around the world.
It was a combination of Saturday Night Live and the 6:00 o'clock news.
This one date was a complete departure from the usual format except in
the quality and creativity of the writing. Even though I haven't seen
it in almost 45 years, I can clearly remember the impact of the show.
On this one date, the program didn't play for laughs. It was a complete
tribute. I've been looking for it for years and didn't realize it was
available. The most interesting piece was a vignette that featured only
the fingers of a hand being used as a puppet on a black background. It
is impossible to describe, but it totally captured the horror, sadness,
and respect felt by virtually everyone. Anyone who is at all interested
in history, should have a copy of this show.
