Audio tapes of Jackie Kennedy, recorded months after the 1963 assassination of her husband President John F Kennedy, have been released for the first time.
In the interviews with a White House historian, she says civil rights leader Martin Luther King is “a terrible man”.
Jackie Kennedy, who died in 1994, reveals how JFK was scathing about Vice-President Lyndon Johnson and some world leaders.
She recalls, too, how her husband joked about the threat of assassination.
Jackie Kennedy opened her heart to White House aide Arthur Schlesinger at her Washington home, four months after JFK was killed in Dallas, Texas.
She agreed to the interviews on condition that they would not be released until long after her death.
