Cancelled Broadcast of President John F. Kennedy's Prerecorded Message to the Japanese People

News of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy reached Asia during the early morning hours of November 23, 1963, because of the time difference, as people there were sleeping. In Japan, the news became the first television broadcast from the United States to Japan via the Relay 1 satellite, instead of a prerecorded message from Kennedy to the Japanese people. President John F. Kennedy's filmed remarks to be sent to Japan via Telstar Satellite was recorded on November 20, 1963. In his speech President Kennedy discusses how the countries' scientific communities can cooperate better, and explains the importance of strengthening the United States' relationship with Japan.
