JFK-they went all the way

When Kennedy was shot I was in my bedroom doing homework, revision for GCE in ’64.
The newsflash came through on Radio Luxembourg-the radio station superceded by pirate radio.
I was shocked and went down to see my parents who were watching TV-black and white in those days. I wondered how the got the film so quickly and then realised it was possibly rushed on a flight. A great light had gone out and the relations with Cuba and Vietnam possibly more difficult because of it. Despite setbacks the era promised a new world much needed after WW2.
