CBS News has released details of its plans to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In addition to special coverage on its various news programs, like Face the Nation and The CBS Evening News, CBS will air a prime time special titled “As It Happened: John F. Kennedy 50 Years” on Saturday, November 16th. A complete press release can be found here.
I am particularly intrigued by the final paragraph in the press release:
Throughout the week, CBSNEWS.COM will stream the original CBS News broadcast coverage of Kennedy’s assassination in real-time as it evolved 50 years ago. The online stream will feature the breaking news coverage from the four-day period following the shooting. Viewers will relive the extraordinary 1963 CBS News reports from New York, Dallas, Washington and around the world as Walter Cronkite, Eric Sevareid, Harry Reasoner, Charles Kuralt, Roger Mudd and others reported the tragedy.
Does this mean all the CBS News coverage from that four-day period survives? Will all of it be streamed or just highlights?
Thursday, November 14th, 2013 Update: CBSNews.com has announced it will be streaming all of the CBS News coverage from November 1963. Read more here.
