From the extensive archives of NBC News comes JFK: 50 Days, an interactive app to mark the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's election as president. A companion to the book JFK: Day by Day (published by Running Press/Perseus), this app takes an intimate look at 50 select moments of the Kennedy presidency-with illuminating photos from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and over 30 archival NBC News clips. The video includes rare footage retrieved by NBC researchers from rusted old film canisters and long-forgotten tapes, some of which has not been seen since it first aired 50 years ago. From history-defining speeches to personal Kennedy family moments, from the first presidential press conference broadcast live on TV to revealing outtakes from Kennedy's last extended interview, JFK: 50 Days provides a unique front-row seat to history.

The app features:

• Video introductions by David Gregory, Moderator of Meet the Press
• Over one hour of video from the NBC News Archives (more than 35 clips)
• Video montages featuring Jackie Kennedy, the Kennedy Family, and JFK
• Outtakes from JFK's final extended interview from NBC's Huntley-Brinkley Report
• Over 45 Photos from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library
• Narrative historical text written in the present tense delivers a genuine "you are there" experience
