The documentary will feature hundreds of hours of unvarnished images, footages and reports from local radio stations, television and home movie cameras that captured the JFK assassination, shedding more light on the exhaustively researched tragedy and raising fresh questions on the heinous crime.

Meanwhile, Capturing Oswald is a hard-boiled, minute-by-minute look at the events that transpired within two days after JFK's death. The documentary, showing at 10 p.m. on Friday, explores the assassination through the officers of the Dallas Police Department who caught the president's killer, Lee Harvey Oswald.

The documentary details the brilliant police work that was done within just 90 minutes that lead to the arrest of the suspect. Police officials closest to the killings will break their silence and take viewers inside the events as they evolved on the ground during the gripping 48 hours of one of the greatest manhunts in American history.
