Product Description

This artfully constructed five-part series offers chilling evidence that American democracy has become a convenient lie; that a conspiratorial coup d'état removed a sitting president and then hid that fact from the American people. This sounds like the stuff of wild-eyed paranoia, but these filmmakers did their homework well--interviews include levelheaded witnesses, suspicious government agents, and Dallas cops present in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963. Some of the "proof" (especially in Episode 2, "The Forces of Darkness") seems a bit far-fetched, but the sheer number of unexplained facts is riveting. An autopsy attendant describes a procedure botched by meddling Secret Service agents. A deaf-mute eyewitness shares his recollection of uniformed men hiding a rifle and leaving the site of the assassination unchallenged. Eisenhower's security chief, present at the shooting, discusses fatal safety lapses--as well as mysterious shots coming from the opposite direction of the Texas School Book Depository. District Attorney Jim Garrison points out that Lee Harvey Oswald, a Marine assigned to Russian reconnaissance, operated a "Communist" organization out of a government intelligence office. Senator Ralph Yarbrough, present in the motorcade, tells of Kennedy's order to recall the troops from Vietnam--an order rescinded by the Pentagon three days after his death. But the most powerful elements of this documentary are the most personal, as hardened cops confess to lasting nightmares, as senatorial investigators tearfully recall the moment they realized the official story did not match the facts, and as simple bystanders share their lasting grief at having witnessed the gory death of America's innocence. --Grant Balfour --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

A medical technician who was at the autopsy states categorically that the body he saw was not the one shown in the official photographs. The mortician who buried Lee Harvey Oswald reveals a startling discovery made 18 years later. A highly decorated Army officer says he was trained to eliminate key witnesses... Forty years after JFK was shot in Dallas, controversy rages around his assassination. The Men Who Killed Kennedy, an authoritative six-part series drawing on exclusive interviews with highly placed government sources and independent investigators, is the most comprehensive examination of the case ever filmed.
The Complete Story in 6 Parts:
The Coup d'Etat - A medical technician casts doubts on the official autopsy photographs, and photo analysis undermines the lone gunman theory.
The Forces of Darkness - See two shadowy figures on the grassy knoll, and find out about the "lost" home movie that contained key evidence.
The Cover-Up - An FBI agent confirms that evidence has been suppressed, and a notorious criminal is confronted about his possible role.
The Patsy - Witness Oswald's reaction when charged with the shooting, and the mortician who buried the alleged assassin reveals what he discovered 18 years later.
The Witnesses - The people who were there - but who the government chose to ignore - tell their versions of what happened at Dealey Plaza.The Truth Shall Set You Free - See conclusive proof that the official autopsy photos were faked, and hear from an Army Colonel who says he was trained to eliminate witnesses to the assassination.

This was on the History Channel 10 years ago on 11/22/2003. They broadcasted the first 9 parts, but not in the order they have been filmed:

1988 Part 1 The Coup d'Etat
1988 Part 2 The Forces of Darkness

1991 Part 3 The Cover-up
1991 Part 4 The Patsy
1991 Part 5 The Witnesses

1995 Part 6 The Truth shall set you free

2003 Part 7 The Smoking Guns
2003 Part 8 The Love Affair
2003 Part 9 The Guilty Men

200? Part 10 The Final Chapter

Part 10 obviously revealed too much and was soon ordered by some court not to be broadcast again.
It's deleted from the imdb, if you check Nigel Turner.
It's such a shame that people cannot even watch it and make up their own mind.
If the collection would at least offer the 9 available parts, I would have rated it 5 stars, but to release only 6 parts and not even in the chronological order that's really bad.

6 Parts ? No ! There are NINE. As you may have seen on the
History Ch. this week. But although H.C advertised TMWKK:
The Final Chapter foe sale it has now been supressed.
Reason: "Legal Issues" ?!? Now Amazon is "Out of Stock" or
No Listing. Clue: Search on Barr McClellan.
You are getting only half the truth.

By A Customer on Feb. 19 2004
This series was excellent. It is well worth the time and money. As a registered nurse, I once worked at Parkland. I found the revelations about falsified documents and autopsy records, altered post mortem photographs, illegal removal of the body from Parkland for an autopsy at Bethesda, missing forensic evidence, and information from the funeral home and Bethesda autopsy personnel very disturbing. Dr. Wecht is more than justified in calling for a 21st century forensic investigation of whatever evidence remains.
The lack of Secret Service protection of the president is appalling. The lack of documentation or "lost logs" is egregious at best. Why hasn't the Secret Service been held accountable? The only plausible explanation is that a conspiracy existed in which the organization was duplicitous on some level.
If you are not familiar with the assassination or this series, buy it! I have viewed it several times. Each time I become more outraged that something of this magnitude could have occurred. The medical and Secret Service information was enough for me to conclude a conspiracy existed.
The newest tapes "The Final Chapter" were equally amazing.
Information from Judy Baker regarding her affair with Oswald was very interesting. Her knowledge of New Orleans, cancer research, and Jackson State Hospital appeared credible. The information about alleged human subject cancer tests performed on Angola inmates at Jackson State Hos[ital was sickening. I have never seen this information presented anywhere other than this series. Information about LBJ wasn't that shocking to me. As a native of Louisiana, I can remember discussions that occurred at the time of the assassination and Shaw trial regarding LBJ. He wasn't perceived as an "honest broker", and many thought that he was involved on a deep level.
Great tapes!! If you are a history buff don't miss them.

This is the best video series ever on the JFK assassination. I can't understand how anyone could believe the Warren Commission Report after seeing this series. The Zapruder film clearly shows a large chunk of Kennedy's head being blown backwards. How could one shot fired from the rear do this? Any fool can see he had to be shot from the front. The doctors who treated Kennedy at Parkland Hospital said that he was shot in the right temple area. People who handled the body said that Kennedy had a large hole in the back of his head. Are they all lying? Peter Jennings conveniently left these questions out of his whitewashed account, "Beyond Conspiracy," and his documentary didn't even show the end of the Zapruder film until the end of the program; and then they didn't bother to comment on the shot from the front.
I'm not a conspiracy nut; I just want the truth. On jury duty you're asked to decide what is true or not true based on the evidence and your experiences in life. Those of us old enough to remember the Kennedy assassination will probably never learn the absolute truth, but this video series offers the most plausible theory yet on what probably happened.

An Australian reviewer says this DVD is propoganda. SOrry pal. We here in the US are not so naieve as to believe one man with a junky, rusty rifle pulled off the most dramatic assassination in history. Forget the "mysteriously dying" witnesses, forget the "three Oswalds" who shot Tippit, Forget the FAT Oswald who went to Mexico, let's just ask one common sense question: Could one man do this? Pretty simple answer; NO! Most compelling is the guy who was an Eagle SCout who was on the knoll but supposedly had no proof. The researchers found him embedded in the shot of the grassy knoll gunman! That one segment proves this is real research done by real people. propoganada? I think not. Just the facts MAN, just the facts!

This 1988 British documentary is loaded with important "real person" interviews that cannot be viewed and just dismissed lightly as "conspiracy hogwash"... Yes, there are flaws, naturally: Beverly Oliver may not be the essence of credibility, and the Corsican hitmen theory smelled a bit over-ripe even if the 2 surviving "hitmen" hadn't allegedly threatened to sue (and successfully had their names removed from the piece, although that's still a controversy in itself)... And much of the data (though not all) is circumstantial and mixed all around, it cant really be ignored upon viewing.
And the 1995 "sequel" chapter ("The Truth Shall Make You Free"), though also worthwhile and very disturbing, seems in places to be infected with some of that latter-day media mindset of 'well-if-we-have-to-admit-that-maybe-there-was-a-conspiracy-then-let's-make-the-Kennedy-brothers-seem-like-they-essentially-brought-it-on-themsleves', which I don't appreciate.
The recent "Final Chapter" was pulled from distribution and is not available for purchase because it implicates LBJ as complicit--- which caused an uproar and, in the mood of 2004, even very old information that would never raise the eyebrows of "students" of this subject, can get suppressed all too easily. (Until it's ever released, a seance with Madeliene Brown will have to suffice).
Nevertheless, despite what you may have heard "TMWKK" is a very serious, chilling documentary, if an imperfect one.
