Lee Harvey Oswald: 48 Hours to Live

Lee Harvey Oswald: 48 Hours to Live

This special seeks to explain the enigmatic Oswald using a brand new approach. No other documentary has exclusively traced Oswald's actions in the minutes, hours and days following the events in Dallas. By shifting the focus on that November weekend, we're able to tell a familiar story in an unfamiliar way, providing a refreshing new perspective on Oswald himself, as well as on the Kennedy assassination. Ultimately, we will lay bare the suspect's final two days, revealing why the Dallas police were convinced they had Kennedy's killer. On his way to the police station after his arrest at the Texas Theater, an officer asked Oswald whether or not he killed the president. Oswald snidely replied: "You find out for yourself." "Lee Harvey Oswald: 48 Hours to Live" eagerly takes up Oswald's 50-year-old challenge. (Source: The History Channel)
