North Korea's official Korean Central Television aired a film about Kim Jong-il on Tuesday that included early pictures of the "dear leader," though it did not identify dates or the other people in them.
The picture on the top shows Kim (center) at the age of 11 and was taken on his father Kim Il-sung's 41st birthday in 1953. On the bottom, a 20-something Kim Jong-il escorts his father on an inspection of a military unit.
