Several months after airing an in-depth documentary about President John F. Kennedy, PBS America is set to give the same treatment to the assassin who ended JFK’s life – Lee Harvey Oswald. The factual channel will be airing a documentary on the man titled Who Was Lee Harvey Oswald? on Thursday March 13th at 9pm.
The latest entry in PBS’ award winning Frontline strand, this documentary promises an in-depth look at the presidential assassin who, despite his infamous crime, remains something of a footnote in history. The two-hour piece aims to explain the enigma that was Oswald by looking at what made him tick, from his childhood, through to his discovery of Marxist literature, enrolling in the USMC and on. It also explains exactly what the man was up to in the months, weeks and days leading up to the assassination and explores one of the more persistent questions about Oswald: did he act alone?
