Overview

This comprehensive History Channel look inside America's most famous family runs nearly 24 hours long, spanning 10 DVDs. This mammoth collection looks at numerous members of the Kennedy family, a sprawling clan that attained a degree of royal status, suffered great tragedies and several falls from grace. John and Bobby both served their country in some of the nation's highest offices. Both were cut down by assassin's bullets. Find out how each brother rose to prominence, the milestones they reached, and the circumstances surrounding their deaths. From RFK's ruthless reputation, garnered during his brother's Senate campaign, to JFK's landmark debates against Nixon and the Bay of Pigs fiasco, revisit the lives of this incredible duo. Dating back to the mysterious death of Joe, Jr., learn about the numerous misfortunes that the family has faced. How has Ted Kennedy's legacy been tarnished by Chappaquiddick? What did the Martha Moxley murder do to affect this family? Have there been cover-ups? What promise did the plane crash of John, Jr. curtail? Not every member has faced an untimely end. See how author and President of the Kennedy Library Foundation, Caroline Kennedy is upholding the family legacy. Learn about the waves the family created in Washington, how they affected the nation, and how their dreams and hopes continue to influence America today. Examine all the mystery, mythology, and landmark events of one of the 20th Century's most famous families.
