The special, timed to coincide with the Sept. 14 publication of the book Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy, will feature interviews of Kennedy that were recorded soon after her husband's death.

In the interviews, conducted by historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., Kennedy talks about life with her husband, their life in the White House and the events that shaped the Kennedy Administration, including their early years on the campaign trail, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Bay of Pigs and his final days in office.
