1. The Kennedy Women: When Jackie Met Jack

In this season of Extraordinary Stories, we’re taking a closer look at the women who married into America’s most influential family, the Kennedy’s. From incredible triumph to unspeakable loss, these women weren’t just on the sidelines of history, they were living it. Whilst it may be their husband’s names inked in modern textbooks, some of the most extraordinary stories of their time belong to the women. Jacqueline Bouvier, Ethel Skakel and Carolyn Bessette. In our first episode, we're starting with the woman whose pink Chanel suit and pillbox hat is imprinted memories around the world. Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis.
