UK TV History’s Infamous Assassinations

Saw the interesting documentary on the assassination of MLK on UK TV History last night, with some new details about James Earl Ray I hadn’t appreciated before such as where he went after the shooting. The programme itself was pretty much sticking to the official line, and didn’t touch on any real suggestions that Ray was not the only guy involved. But hey, there you go.

It’s a neat coincidence that Ray was alive to witness the 30th anniversary of King’s death, dying later in April 1998. It’s a shame the BBC, which I set up the opportunity to cover the anniversary, in effect turned that opportunity down even though they sent someone along with me to cover it thanks to Shaun’s help. Oh well, better luck next time.
