BBC Normal Schedules are Awashed as Kennedy is Assassinated

BBC President Kennedy death continuity 1963

The assassination of US president John F. Kennedy is one those news events of "where were you when the news hit?". On the 22nd November 1963, the 35th president of the United States was shot in the back and then the head, while in a open-top car procession in Dallas, Texas. Not much to say about this clip, also profiling the UK weather, squashed in-between the replacement of normal scheduled programmes, for a Kennedy tribute and more changes over the course of the weekend as announced by the typically well-spoken announcer. The clip is of good ident and ends with a non-fancy schmancy graphical, real-as-real BBC clock ident.
