Jeremy Vine, Dermot O’Leary, Louise Minchin and JFK experts guided listeners through the events of the day in real time, minute by minute, jumping around the world as the news spread.

The programme featured a soundtrack performed by a range of Radio 2 artists live in the studio, re-interpreting hits from November 1963, as well as the music that played a part in the day of the shooting. Tracks ranged from the Texan songs sung to the President by a choir as he arrived in Dallas, to the song that was playing when the assassination was first announced to the world on Dallas radio station KLIF.
