— "American Experience: JFK" (PBS, Nov. 11 and Nov. 12 at 9 p.m. EST) is a four-hour, two-part special that promises "a fresh assessment of the man" from his childhood through death.
And finally, the public is heard from, both then and now:
— "Letters to Jackie" (TLC, Nov. 17 at 9 p.m. EST) invites a roster of celebrities to read a few of the 800,000 condolence letters sent to first lady Jacqueline Kennedy and her family in the two months following the killing.
— "JFK Assassination: The Definitive Guide" (History, Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. EST) offers polling results of thousands of Americans to reveal what they do and don't believe today regarding the shooting and who was responsible (in the process uncovering what the network says are 311 distinctly different conspiracy theories).
— "Where Were You?" (NBC, Nov. 22 at 9 p.m. EST), anchored by Tom Brokaw, combines archival footage with first-person accounts of those (including famous Americans and ordinary citizens) who lived through it.
