"JFK: FOR THE RECORD" SPECIAL PRIMETIME PREMIERE ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16TH AT 9PM ET/6PM PT

Extended Rare and In-Depth Interview with Federal District Judge John R. Tunheim, Chairman of the Assassination Records Review Board

Half-Hour Television Event Narrated by Award-Winning Journalist Bill Kurtis

(Albuquerque, NM) Thursday, November 14, 2013 - ReelzChannel today announced JFK: For the Record makes its special primetime premiere on Saturday, November 16 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT and features a fascinating first-hand account from U.S. District Judge John R. Tunheim who chaired the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB), which met for four years during the Clinton Administration after its formation under the President John. F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act (JFK Act) of 1992. Under Tunheim's leadership, the ARRB uncovered, verified and made public more than five million pages of documents, evidence and witness statements. Much of what was released by the ARRB is what opened the door for greater public scrutiny into the assassination of President Kennedy including the in-depth investigation that made the documentary JFK: The Smoking Gun possible.

In JFK: For the Record, Judge Tunheim describes the challenges the ARRB faced trying to locate some of the records 30 years after the assassination including the inexplicable disappearance of certain Secret Service documents. Judge Tunheim also talks about the ARRB's findings surrounding President Kennedy's autopsy, from the possible reasons behind the unlawful removal of the president's body from Dallas by the Secret Service to the fact that pathologists who performed the autopsy burned their notes afterwards. Also, Judge Tunheim details which government agencies were cooperative with the ARRB's assignment - and which were not, and whether he believes Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman or if Oswald might have been part of a broader conspiracy to assassinate President Kennedy. Judge Tunheim also reveals how important Oliver Stone's movie, JFK, was to the passage of the JFK Act of 1992 and the formation of the ARRB.

"Viewers have responded in force to our Kennedys programming and due to overwhelming demand we're excited and honored to share more of Judge Tunheim's rare and revealing interview in JFK: For the Record," said ReelzChannel CEO Stan E. Hubbard. "Judge Tunheim's work through the ARRB is crucial to our understanding of what really happened with JFK's assassination and the ensuing investigations."

JFK: The Smoking Gun is a two-hour documentary inspired by the book of the same name from veteran police detective Colin McLaren, who spent four and a half years on the forensic cold-case investigation of JFK's assassination and believes he has found the smoking gun that killed the president. After reading Bonar Menninger's "Mortal Error: The Shot That Killed JFK" which details the 25 years of painstaking work done by ballistics expert Howard Donahue, McLaren committed himself to digging even deeper in the case with the discipline of his crime scene investigation experience. McLaren's investigation marks the first and only time a qualified homicide detective has carefully analyzed the complete catalog of evidence, testimony and witness statements surrounding the JFK assassination using modern techniques and the most recently released information. Using state-of-the-art investigative tools and research methodologies, McLaren answers what is perhaps the most asked question of the last 50 years - who killed JFK? For those interested in going deeper into the books behind the story, "JFK: The Smoking Gun" and "Mortal Error: The Shot that Killed JFK", both books are available to buy through links featured at www.reelz.com/smokinggun.
