  • Required viewing

    By Mark Landis
    This documentary should be required curriculum for all High School students. This time in our nations history required the type of leadership, and vision exemplified by President Kennedy with the help and input of an absolutely trustworthy (to the President) Attorney General, his brother Bobby. While the decisions and choices made by President Kennedy were nothing short of visionary, the documentary also illuminates his personal, moral failures. The viewer is left with a better understanding of the 1,000 days. The sometimes questionable steps taken to assure his election, the vision necessary to prevent the horrors of atomic war, and the country's broken heart when Camelot came to an end much too early. All of us could benefit by viewing this presentation of a most wonderful, albeit frightening time to be alive.

    the video presents unacceptable video artifacts seems to be horizontal tearing…. this does not show up on the PBS website… Is there some problem encoding PBS video for the Apple store?
