Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963, Digitally Restored For National Geographic Channel Doc
I've had a copy of National Geographic Channel's JFK: The Lost Bullet sitting on the desk for a week; haven't watched it yet, but there's time -- it doesn't air till Sunday at 8 p.m. And while it's said to show Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone on November 22, 1963, its more intriguing selling point is its restoration of several home movies taken on that fateful day in Dealey Plaza -- not only the Zapruder film, but also one taken by Robert Hughes. Per FOX News's selling point for its sister channel's special, the Hughes film upgrade shows "a shadowy figure moving about inside the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository building -- a figure believed to be Oswald." Well, that settles it.
Anyway. The video above offers a teasing glimpse of the special and of downtown on that day, which has never looked better.
