If you Google “JFK Videos” it’s surprising how little shows up in search – a few grainy clips slapped onto YouTube, some pricey DVDs and conspiracy sites.
British Pathé is the proud owner of numerous John F. Kennedy videos, rare archived newsreels and clips that collectively document the whole JFK story. From his birth, education, early years and young career through to his presidential visits, private life and the assassination aftermath. Great clips of Jackie O can be found in the British Pathé archive too, notably her bereavement broadcast in which she thanks America for their kind letters of condolence.
The JFK film archive includes footage of the former president with Sir Winston Churchill; Jackie Kennedy with her children Caroline and John at the launch of a new ship; momentous footage of JFK speaking out against the Cuban missile crisis and priceless scenes of the furore following the assassination.
