"A rare, high-quality colour film of US President John F Kennedy on the day of his assassination has been released to the public for the first time. The film shows the president and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy arriving on Air Force One at Love Field airport in Dallas, Texas on 22 November, 1963. It was shot on 8mm film by William Ward Warren, then a 15-year-old student, who recalls his memories of President Kennedy's arrival."

Letter From America: Assassination of J F Kennedy, Sun 24 Nov 1963
"The assassination of John F Kennedy, the first president of the television age, and the style, grace and fun he brought to the White House."

The Reunion: The Kennedy Assassination
"In this special 100th edition of The Reunion recorded in Dallas, Sue MacGregor reunites five people who were intimately connected to the events surrounding the Kennedy assassination: Clint Hill, the former Secret Service agent who frantically climbed up the back of the presidential limousine as the shots rang out; Gayle Newman, who stood with her young family in Dealey Plaza and became one of the closest eyewitnesses; Hugh Aynesworth, then of the Dallas Morning News, who reported on the events in November 1963, Kenneth Salyer, who was part of the medical team at Parkland Hospital, desperately trying to revive the President; and James Leavelle, retired Dallas Homicide Detective, who was famously handcuffed to Lee Harvey Oswald when he was shot by Jack Ruby."

Outlook: I Should Have Taken JFK's Bullet
"Clint Hill was assigned bodyguard to American First Lady Jackie Kennedy from 1960 to 1964. On the day that President John F Kennedy was shot, Clint was riding in the car immediately behind the President and his wife. He leapt onto the car to try to protect the President from the bullets but was unable to save him. In an amazing and moving interview, Clint tells Matthew Bannister how his inability to save President Kennedy has haunted him for fifty years. "

Witness: Lee Harvey Oswald and the USSR
"Lee Harvey Oswald, the man accused of killing President John F Kennedy in November 1963 had spent more than two years living in the USSR. He had defected there after serving as a US Marine. He got a job in Minsk, and got married but was then welcomed back to the USA."

Woman's Hour: JFK
"Everyone can remember where they where when they heard the news. For two sisters, Clare and Mairead O'Connor, from County Laoise in the Republic of Ireland, the fascination with Kennedy began when he visited their country just months before he died and it has remained a life long ambition to visit the sites associated with the first Irish Catholic President. After much soul searching they decided not to cancel their trip after the terrorist bombings and accompanied by reporter Mary Harte started their journey in Boston."

Talking Movies: Shooting history: Parkland's untold stories of JFK's assassination
"Almost 50 years since the assassination of US President John F Kennedy in Texas, a new film is exploring the shooting through the eyes of ordinary people. Parkland examines the events of November 22 1963 from the perspective of the medical staff who treated the president, the detectives who sought his killer, and the man who filmed that dramatic moment in history."

Allan Scott meets friends and relatives of The Beatles to discover the roots of the band and learn more about their early years. Contributors include former drummer Pete Best and Millie Sutcliffe, mother of original band member Stuart Sutcliffe. Note: this recording has been edited for copyright reasons."
