  1. Of course it was a WWYW moment, perhaps the first shared throughout the world. BBC were doing their WWYW JFK assassination yesterday. I went and wrote as below:

    I was at Trinity College, Cambridge. I was listening to the BBC as usual before going to hall for dinner. The announcement said he had been shot but nothing more. We spoke about it in the JCR. By the time I returned to my room it was confirmed that he had died. Next morning I took the train to go to visit my sister at Norwich Tec. I read all the papers on the journey about the assassination. We watched the TV all the way through and cried thinking of Jacqueline and the young kids, Carolyn and John. Oswald’s shooting was on live TV. John-John saluted the coffin as it passed by.

    BBC News website readers – some who lived outside the US at the time – recall the moment they heard the news of JFK’s assassination.
