In 'Something Is Terribly Wrong', first broadcast on BBC Radio 4, 22nd November 2003, Alan Thompson charts the confusion and shock after the assassination. He returns to the key sites in Dallas, and talks to eye witnesses including Nellie Connolly (ex. First Lady of Texas), Jim Leavelle (ex. Dallas detective), Jim Ewell (ex. Dallas Morning News corres), Hugh Aynesworth (ex. Dallas Morning News correspondent/eye witness), Gary Delaune (KLIF correspondent), Roy Nichols (correspondent), Aubry Rike (ambulance driver/witness), and Ken Dowe. News actuality from the day is used throughout to illustrate how the news was broken to the world. In 'Letter to America', first broadcast on the BBC Home Service on 24th November 1963, the renowned broadcaster Alistair Cooke uses his weekly radio missive to reflect upon the legacy of John F. Kennedy, and to observe that the American nation feels it has been robbed of a brother.
