To celebrate the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's presidential inauguration, TLC is breaking out some rare footage and never-before-seen Kennedy family home movies -- and ET has a sneak peek.
The two-hour special "Kennedys' Home Movies," narrated by Stockard Channing, follows three generations of the Kennedy family through private moments and historical events.
It begins with the rise of Joe Kennedy and his political plans for his namesake, Joe Jr., who was tragically killed in action in World War II. Joe Sr. then successfully set his sights on making JFK president of the United States.
The special also covers JFK's romance with Jacqueline Bouvier, who became his wife and his widow when he was assassinated on Nov. 22, 1963.
The next Kennedy to run for the office of president was Robert Kennedy, who sadly was fatally shot by Sirhan Sirhan at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. And, then, of course, there was Edward "Teddy" Kennedy's failed run for the presidency and the Chappaquiddick scandal that could have ended his political career.
To find out what it really was like to be a Kennedy and to go inside the family's compound in Hyannis Port, tune in when "Kennedys' Home Movies" premieres Sunday, January 30 at 9 p.m. on TLC.
