The Documentary Channel will showcase the U.S. premiere of a documentary on the assassination of Bobby Kennedy June 9.
The Nashville-based channel’s release of the investigative documentary, “RFK MUST DIE: The Assassination of Bobby Kennedy,” will air at 8 p.m., Monday, June 9. The documentary commemorates the 40th anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination.
The 102-minute documentary was written, directed and produced by BBC reporter, author and filmmaker Shane O’Sullivan in 2007.
It is the result of a new, three-year investigation into the controversies surrounding the assassination of Bobby Kennedy on June 5, 1968 as he campaigned to challenge Richard Nixon for the White House, a Documentary Channel release says.
The Documentary Channel acquired exclusive U.S. television rights to the film through London-based distributor 3DD Entertainment. An encore telecast is slated for 9 p.m., Wednesday, June 25.
