Cudos to Gloria Healy from the UK for referring this BBC production to me. As Gloria stated, it was found “. . . on the YouTube channel of John Edington Documentary; it is an award winning documentary made by Otmoor productions Ltd . I had not seen it previously on YouTube so I’m assuming it’s only been posted recently, I think You would find it most interesting. The documentary has no leaning, so to speak, of James Earl Ray being guilty of the murder of Martin Luther King Jr, It simply deals with logic including ballistics.”

This video has “stood the test of time” very well, hitting the most salient points of the story, and the related anomalies, while presenting it in a completely objective and straightforward manner.

The more interesting aspects of this production are found in the filmed interviews with people like Percy Foreman, Jim Garrison, Harold Weisberg, and James Earl Ray himself. A man who was one of his handlers, if not the legendary “Raoul” himself, Jules Ricco Kimble is also featured, among others.  Most of people appearing in the film are now deceased, but they come back to life in film long enough for us to “measure their mettle.”

More importantly is the fact that the film got so much right, for its time circa 1990. It’s this point that forms the biggest contrast to what appeared in Europe, vs. what the U.S. media produced. It illustrates how divided the U.S. was from the rest of the world in that time and space, resulting in two disparate story versions due to all the “disinformation” books that were put out in the U.S. media, at the corrupted FBI’s behest using CIA’s imbedded assets.

The video is just over one hour in length, but one can jump to any point on the timeline to go to a particular person or event, including these, as noted by the timeline references:
