TLC Takes an Intimate Look Inside America's First Family With "Kennedys' Home Movies," Premiering Sunday, January 30 at 9/8c
What was it really like to be a Kennedy? On the heels of the 50th anniversary of JFK's inauguration, TLC answers that question with KENNEDYS' HOME MOVIES, a two-hour television event premiering Sunday, January 30 at 9 PM (ET/PT). Narrated by Stockard Channing, this intimate portrait captures the Kennedy family as they've never been seen before in home movies and rare footage.
KENNEDYS' HOME MOVIES follows three generations of Kennedys through the most poignant family memories and historical moments, including Joe Sr.'s rise as the family's patriarch and architect of the political dynasty; the untimely death of first son and political heir, Joe Jr.; JFK's romance with Jackie, his election as president and the promise of a new generation cut short by his assassination; Bobby's rise in politics and tragic assassination; Teddy's failed attempt at the presidency; and the third and even fourth generation of Kennedys determined to carry on the family legacy. These moments are shown as they've rarely been seen before, inside the family's compound in Hyannis Port and the privacy of Bobby's Hickory Hill. Joe Sr. often preached "stick with family" -- and in times of joy and sorrow, through all of the secrets and scandals, the Kennedys took their father's advice and turned back home.
