This sounds good :)
On television, BBC Two will dedicate the evening of January 2 to an Elvis Night comprising the in-concert films Elvis Presley: The Comeback from 1968 and 1973's Elvis In Hawaii, as well as a compilation of his home movies, and a new documentary, Elvis In Vegas. This is executive-produced by BBC TV head of music Mark Cooper and will examine "the untold story" of how Presley's career was transformed by his on-off residency in Las Vegas from 1969 until his death in 1977, and also how this boosted the Nevada city's fortunes.
Directed by Jeremy Marre, the film aims to show how the scheming of manager "Colonel" Tom Parker and the excesses of Vegas in turn destroyed Presley.
