(Washington D.C.– October 31, 2011) The assassination of President John F. Kennedy still reverberates for the nation and the world after almost 50 years, yet there still seem to be more questions than answers. According to a 2003 poll, as many as 70 percent of Americans still believe either that Lee Harvey Oswald was innocent or that he didn't act alone. Most experts and skeptics agree that three shots were fired at JFK, but one bullet missed and was never recovered. The official investigations never pinpointed the time and location of all three shots and can only account for two of three bullets.
Now, National Geographic Channel (NGC) provides an unprecedented new look at the only eyewitness evidence from that fatal day —the home movies shot by average citizens at Dealey Plaza in Dallas.
Newly remastered in high definition at a higher resolution that ever before
, could the additional level of detail reveal evidence needed to put to rest some of the biggest conspiracy theories surrounding the assassination?
Two days before the 48th anniversary of JFK's assassination,NGC presents JFK: The Lost Bullet on Sunday, November 20, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The world premiere documentary offers the exclusive first look at home videos from that fateful day, including the restored Zapruder film, remastered in crystal-clear high definition and combined for the first time together in one film.The digital scans offer more than projected images ever could — including details in the areas of exposed film between the sprocket holes.
Could this obscured information shed light on some of the many controversies surrounding JFK's death — including the mystery of the missing bullet?
Led by renowned historian and author Max Holland, a team of expert investigators analyzes the remastered films for new clues. Culling together these eyewitness movies frame by frame, Holland creates a second-by-second reconstruction of what took place in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963.
Referring to one of the restored home movie clips, he says,"This is extremely exciting because as far as I'm concerned, this is a new filmabout the assassination that's never been able to be viewed or evaluated —because it's never appeared with such clarity."
With the new high-definition scans and higher resolution, Holland thinks critical new details are revealed, including what he believes is the first time we are able to see Lee Harvey Oswald moving in the sixth floor window within seconds of the first shot. If Holland is right, the film may offer new clues as to where the mysterious first bullet actually hit.
JFK: The Lost Bullet investigates this historic crime scene with help from a retired U.S. Secret Service agent who participated in the first U.S. Secret Service investigation of the assassination, a key eye witness who hasn't talked publicly about the assassination since 1967 and a wound ballistics expert.
Shutting down the streets of Dealey Plaza, the team restages the shooting using a replica of Kennedy's car, an identical rifle and ammunition.Measuring the angle of the rifle with lasers, they match the approximate trajectory of each of the three bullets.
Pairing their findings with the home movies, additional eyewitness accounts, and archival photos and records, Max Holland builds a case for what he thinks no official report has ever managed to provide: a clear explanation for the missing bullet fired by Lee Harvey Oswald.
JFK: The Lost Bullet is produced by National Geographic Television for National Geographic Channel (NGC). For National Geographic Television, executive producer is Pamela Caragol Wells. For NGC, executiveproducer is Kathleen Cromley.

wow, that makes me dance, has X-Mas come early this year ? I can't recall having seen the early Bell sequences in full frame, pluss the sprocket hole area. That goes also for all the other films which they promise will be presented with the sprocket hole area included.
That is very good news imo. I pray that NG will present them in a way researchers can work with them, that means complete films/sequences and without any FX tralala.
