NEW YORK, NY -- November 7, 2013 -- NBC News marks the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of JFK with an extensive week of programming that culminates in a two-hour documentary "Where Were You: The Day JFK Died," reported by Tom Brokaw. Premiering on Friday, November 22 at 9p, the documentary, nine months in the making, combines personal reflections and NBC News' archival footage. In addition, NBCNews.com today launches a unique interactive video experience available at www.nbcnews.com/JFK50 that includes more than 270 clips and quotes, curated from the Brokaw documentary.

In the week leading up to the 50th anniversary, viewers will hear from Tom Brokaw on "Meet The Press" as well as "TODAY," where he will be joined by fellow colleague Dan Rather, who also reported on that fateful day. In addition, interviews with former Secret Service Agent Clint Hill and a myriad of historians, journalists, authors, politicians, filmmakers and activists will also be featured.

Brokaw, who was reporting for NBC's WOWT-6 in Omaha when the news broke, reflects, "I was operating on two tracks - as a journalist, trying to cover the story, and as a young man just becoming an adult. I grew up in a hurry that day, realizing how quickly one violent act can change so much." In his two-hour documentary, "Where Were You: The Day JFK Died," Brokaw profiles more than forty people, including the widow of a Dallas police officer who received a letter from First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, and the neurosurgeon who examined the President.

Below is the schedule of NBC News' extensive programming:
