節目介紹 Introduction

儘管甘迺迪家族曾展現出光彩照人的公眾家庭形象,但他們也有許多外界從不知道的親密家庭時光。然而,這些大部分的私密生活都被錄製在罕見的16釐米彩色家庭電影中,僅供家人觀看。透過這些非凡的家庭電影,觀眾將發現甘迺迪家族從1935年開始鮮為人知的故事,直到甘迺迪於1961年1月宣誓就職。這部特輯採訪了甘迺迪家族的親密友人,並參考親密的信件,還有來自九位甘迺迪後代的個人紀錄。這些原始資料,再加上前所未有的錄音帶,將使甘迺迪家族替自己發聲。

Although the Kennedys were a public family who projected a glittering public image, they were also intensely private, with many of the most intimate family moments hidden from the eyes of the outside world. And yet, much of their private lives was recorded -- filmed for their viewing only -- on rare 16mm color home movies. Through these remarkable home movies, viewers will discover the little-known story of the Kennedy clan from 1935 through JFK's swearing in as President in January 1961. This special draws on interviews with people close to the Kennedy family as well as intimate letters and other personal documents from the nine Kennedy children. These original sources, combined with never-before-heard audio tapes, will allow the Kennedys to speak for themselves.
