The true horror of the Kennedy assassination was brought into the living rooms of Americans on March 6, 1975 – in living color. Geraldo Rivera‘s late night show Good Night America on ABC was the first outlet to air the 8mm film shot more than a decade earlier by bystander Abraham Zapruder in Dallas.
I’ve been a fan of “early” Geraldo only in retrospect – from this late-night series that I was not permitted to stay up to watch, and from his work at WABC-TV – especially the Willowbrook coverage – which I had no access to as a kid in Cincinnati. I’ve been fascinated by all the conspiracies surrounding the JFK assassination. I’ve read many books on the subject and have drawn my own conclusions. I’m excited to get access to this historic program which only adds to my fascination.
