"JFK: One PM Central Standard Time" on Secrets of the Dead airs Wednesday

This program tells the story of two men: one, the president of the United States — shot in Dallas and rushed to Parkland hospital, his fate unknown — the other, respected CBS anchor Walter Cronkite, knowing he had to get the story right amid the uncertainties of that tragic day. Narrated by George Clooney and featuring an interview with President Bill Clinton, the special recounts the riveting story of the reporting from Dallas and the New York CBS Newsroom from the moment President Kennedy was shot until Cronkite’s emotional pronouncement of his death at 1:00 p.m. CST. The program features moving memories from the producers, writers and reporters who were there on the day, including Dan Rather, Bob Schieffer, Marvin Kalb and Marianne Means.

"JFK: One PM Central Standard Time" on Secrets of the Dead airs on Wednesday, November 13th at 9:00 p.m. on channels 3 and 3-1 and on Thursday, November 14th at 7:00 p.m. on channels 3.
