National Geographic Special Edition

DVD
National Geographic reveals the true story behind the legend of John F Kennedy and PT-109 - a more complex, more intriguing tale than we were ever led to believe.

The Search For Kennedy's PT-109

At the height of the Second World War, a young Navy Lieutenant stood at the helm of a U.S. patrol boat and in one ill-starred night made his mark in the annals of history. That young man later became on of the most popular Presidents of the US - John Fitzgerald Kennedy. National Geographic reveals the true story behind the legend - a more complex, more intriguing tale than we were ever led to believe.

Famed ocean explorer Dr. Robert Ballard will travel to the Solomon Islands to find the sunken wreck of Kennedy's boat, the PT-109. Through eyewitness accounts of survivors, local islanders and other PT crews on patrol that night, along with powerful footage from the war in the Pacific, we retell the remarkable story of JFK's heroic struggle to rally his crew and get them safely to shore and explore the controversies that have swirled around the boat's sinking.
