Something Is Terribly Wrong

"Something is Terribly Wrong" - the chilling words spoken by a radio reporter when President John F Kennedy was shot.

Using vivid archive material, Alan Thompson charts the confusion and shock as the unbelievable was confirmed. Thompson returns to key sites and talks to eye witnesses, including the detective who was handcuffed to the man arrested for the assassination, Lee Harvey Oswald, when he too was gunned down.

With archive from the Dallas radio station KLIF and recordings of police radio, the events of those three days that shocked the world are relived.
