THE KENNEDY FILES

RFK: THE KENNEDY FAM­ILY RE­MEM­BERS

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - News -

8.30PM, MON­DAY, HIS­TORY CHAN­NEL

THE ’60s was the era of po­lit­i­cal as­sas­si­na­tions – JFK, Mal­colm X, MLK and fi­nally RFK. All lead­ers in their own right, all cut down be­fore their time. Hav­ing al­ways lived in his older brother’s shadow, Robert Kennedy was on the cusp of his own great­ness when he was struck down just as cru­elly. When you have a cur­rent US pres­i­dent tweet­ing “CNN sucks”, it’s hard not to have nos­tal­gia for a time when can­di­dates could quote Aeschy­lus. In this doco, we hear four of RFK’s chil­dren share their per­sonal rec­ol­lec­tions of their fa­ther on the 50th an­niver­sary of his death.
