Det Con Goddard:
Marilyn Monroe , the most glamorous star in Hollywood, died alone in August 1962, surrounded by intrigue, and rejected by powerful political lovers.
The Private Eye's Story Marilyn and John F. Kennedy share a bedroom at a Californian beach house.
The room is bugged - by the President's enemies.
The Confidante's Story Marilyn is in love with the President's brother. Fearful of scandal, Bobby Kennedy tries to end the affair.
The Brother-in-Law's Story Marilyn is dying from an overdose of drugs. On the phone she tells the Kennedys' brother-in-law,
Peter Lawford : 'Say goodbye to the President.'
The Ambulanceman 's
Story Marilyn is not found dead, as reported to the public, but alive. She is taken to hospital, too late to save her life, but giving time - it is claimed - to get Bobby out of town.
Innocently, Marilyn Monroe had been caught up in a sinister underworld of political dirty tricks, Mafia bosses and wiretappers.
Say Goodbye to the President examines the scandal which hovered over America's most powerful political dynasty - and how the Kennedys' enemies tried to use tape recordings to pressure the government of the USA. Programme consultant ANTHONY SUMMERS
