Elvis Has Left The Building

April 22, 2007 | Video
Here is a new DVD from Eternal Flame Productions entitled "Elvis Has Left The Building". This 80 minutes region free DVD features reports, mainly from the Dutch, Belgian, German and U.K. television, on the death of Elvis Presley.


There is no way to describe the effect that Elvis' death had on a television audience 30 years ago. In every country, on every network, broadcasters rearranged their schedules to carry special news programmes and documentary footage marking the end of an era. No death of any entertainer has ever been given such a massive amount of air-time, both in the USA and around the world. It would be impossible to present to you every news bulletin from every country, but the producers of this commemorative programme have gathered together some of the most important "breaking news" items of the time which will give you a feel for the emotions which were running wild at the very moment when Elvis Presley's death was announced.

This unique time capsule will transport you back to August 1977 when fans around the world mourned the passing of the greatest entertainer of all time, when Elvis Presley left our building. We thank those broadcasters who have generously let our production company have access to their archives. Please note that some of the material used was recorded off-air and included for historical content, as not all TV companies archive their footage, so the quality of each news report will vary. We hope that you appreciate this documentary piece of TV history.

Its seems sometimes we know more about his death than his life,maybe not,but i do know that id rather look at his life and enjoy his msuic than focus on the what if's etc,i guess some enjoy these these kind of releases,but theres so much other stuff to see and enjoy,id like to see a dvd on elvis the artist and have it go from the sun days to the last recording session in the jungle room!

If I come across this DVD then I'm going to buy it as I've always wanted to see how the news were at that day; my only complaint is that it's too short and varies in video quality (but luckily they told us beforehand)

mainly from the Dutch, Belgian, German and U.K. television? Why not Finland, Greenland, Norway and Sweden?
