A Narrative History of the White House by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy

This video “A TOUR OF THE WHITE HOUSE WITH MRS. JOHN F. KENNEDY” is just a short 10 minute out-take of an hour-long guided tour of the U.S. President’s residence in Washington, D.C., with First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy serving as official tour guide. This portion contains a narrative history of the White House.

This program was produced by CBS-TV and was first aired on February 14, 1962, with an enormous audience (approximate 50 million, three out of four viewers watched) tuning in to CBS that evening to watch it.
