RFK: THE KENNEDY FAMILY REMEMBERS 8.30PM, MONDAY, HISTORY
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.
