    Would you listen to Free: Three Shots Rang Out - The JFK Assassination 50 Years Later again? Why?

    Yes. I could listen to this over and over. It brought me back to that weekend in 1963. I cried then and this story brought it all back again. I have watched many tellings of this on TV over the years but this was the most compelling report ever. I felt the emotions all over again. Kudos to ABC. Absolutely outstanding.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The voices throughout - from 1963 and from today. It just hit a nerve all the way through.


    Have you listened to any of Diane Sawyer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. She is amazing. But the JFK assassination changed history and changed our lives - mine for sure.


    If you could give Free: Three Shots Rang Out - The JFK Assassination 50 Years Later a new subtitle, what would it be?

    I wouldn't change anything.

    Fascinating to hear Kennedy and a two faced Mississippi governor talking about implementing a court order regarding segregation and how Kennedy worked him into a corner. Johnson gives a great life lesson on how to influence people. Nixon says unbelievable things, how did he forget it was all being recorded?

    Three of America's most compelling presidents, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon, bugged their White House offices and tapped their telephones. They left behind thousands of secretly recorded conversations, from momentous to mundane. In this documentary project, American RadioWorks eavesdrops on presidential telephone calls to hear how each man used one-on-one politics to shape history.

    A fifth series from BBC Radio 4, in which Stephen Fry examines, with the help of experts, the highways and byways of the English language. In these four episodes he tells 'The Story of X': a letter holy and profane, sexy and chaste; discusses intonation, the "song" of English, and how cadence affects meaning; muses on the art and craft of conversation - and whether true conversation can happen on TV and radio - and ponders the meaning of meaning and the gap between brain and mouth that means language can never truly represent thought.

    The RMS Titanic sailed from Southampton en route for New York on her maiden voyage with 2,228 passengers and crew on board. On 14 April, 1912, at twenty minutes before midnight, sailing at almost full speed, she struck an iceberg and sank in just two and a half hours. Over 1500 lives were lost. This is the story of a great tragedy described by the surviving passengers, officers, and crew who were on board that night. Firsthand accounts help to explain why so few of the passengers took to the lifeboats.

    Hard-working, dedicated, inventive, and ready to tackle any genre - that was Academy Award-winning director Robert Wise. Despite all the praise and awards, Wise could easily be called one of Hollywood's always working blue-collar directors. He helmed everything from B movies to Academy Award-winning blockbusters, all while managing to live a quiet life amid the glitz, glamour, and scandal of Tinsel Town. How this soft-spoken man managed to tame mega-stars' egos while directing film classics remains a mystery.

    Alien Implants are a physical object placed in a human body after they have been abducted by Aliens. Capabilities of the implants range from telepresence to mind control and biotelemetry (akin to humans tagging wild animals for study). Dr. Roger Leir is one of the world’s most important leaders in physical evidence research involving the field of Ufology. He and his surgical team have performed numerous surgeries on alleged alien abductees resulting in the removal of distinct objects suspected of being Alien Implants.
