written by Lee Barnett (Budgie) and Kim Morrissey

1. GRAMS: SOMBRE MUSIC UP AND UNDER

2. ANNOUNCER: Thirty years ago this week an event happened that changed the world. Tonight, we on WEEKENDING pay tribute to a man. A very special man. A man with millions of admirers around the world. A model for a whole generation. There are few who moved so many so strongly so long. We asked a few people how that event thirty years ago affected them:

3. MAN 1: Well, I couldn't watch. I mean, it was just too terrible.

4. WOMAN : I couldn't watch. I hid behind the sofa.

5. MAN 2 : We all watched. It was unreal.

6. ANNOUNCER: This man, whose career was so cruelly cut short by powers beyond his control. Some say assassination ... some say conspiracy ... All agree he was a man out of his time. Thirty years on, the question on everybody's lips is still, and will always be: "Where were you?" "Where were you thirty years ago ... in November 1963
... when you first ... heard ... this ...?
