Long on running time, short on substance, plus one outrage
27 April 2015 | by dlxmarksSee all my reviews

"JFK: One PM CST" is an episode of "Secrets of the Dead" in name only. It lacks the established forensic style of "SotD." Instead it's mostly recreations and archival footage that takes over 90 minutes to say that on November 22, 1963, it was difficult both to determine what happened in Dallas and then to communicate the news to the public. Frankly, from the beginning of history to the present day, when has this ever not been the case with breaking news? And yet this episode treats 11/22/63 as an unprecedented occurrence. My bigger complaint, though, is that the narration makes the claim that Kennedy was on the verge of ending the Cold War when he was killed. To quote "Powerful evidence has emerged that Kennedy was closer than ever before to ending the standoff between the superpowers." That's a very bold statement but, aside from suggesting a joint moon program, absolutely no facts are provided to back it up. Indeed, the follow up footage of Kennedy in Europe shows him strongly criticizing the Soviets. Making such a strong claim and then simply moving on with the story really destroyed this program's credibility with me.
