“Secrets of the Dead: JFK: One PM Central Standard Time” tells the story of two men: the President of the United States – shot in Dallas and rushed to Parkland hospital, his fate unknown – and CBS anchor Walter Cronkite, who had to get the story right amid the uncertainties of that tragic day. Narrated by George Clooney and featuring an interview with President Bill Clinton, the special recounts the riveting story of the reporting from Dallas and the CBS Newsroom in New York from the moment President Kennedy was shot until Cronkite’s emotional pronouncement of his death at One PM Central Standard Time. It features archival footage of President Kennedy and Cronkite, and memories from the producers, writers, and reporters who were there on that fateful day, including Dan Rather, Bob Schieffer, Marvin Kalb, and Marianne Means.
