This English-produced program was shown on the History Channel in its entirety, then all hell broke loose and people who had a vested interest in LBJ made such a ruckus that the offending episodes were taken out. Subsequent airings of the program had this portion missing. You cannot find it anywhere for sale. It has been completely removed from circulation.

The ninth segment, titled "The Guilty Men", directly implicated Lyndon B. Johnson. Within days, Johnson's widow, Lady Bird Johnson, more of his surviving associates, ex-President Jimmy Carter, and the lone, living Warren Commission commissioner and ex-President Gerald R. Ford immediately complained to the History Channel. They subsequently threatened legal action against Arts & Entertainment Company, owner of the History Channel. "The Guilty Men" segment was completely withdrawn by the History Channel, that action resulting in considerable controversy.
