Robert MacNeil: 'Bumping into Oswald' in Book Depository

22 November 2013 Last updated at 20:35 GMT

The US has been commemorating the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F Kennedy.

Among those in Dallas that fateful day was author and journalist Robert MacNeil.

He spoke to Laura Trevelyan for the BBC's World News America programme about the possibility that he may have bumped into the assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, in the moments after the shooting when he ran into the Texas School Book Depository Building to find a telephone.
