C5 is devoting a night to Elvis tonight. It kicks off at 9pm (UK) with Elvis by the Presleys, which features home movies and interviews with Priscilla Presley and daughter Lisa Marie, and Priscilla’s parents remember their teenage daughter meeting Private Presley in Germany. That’s followed by the ’68 Comeback Special, which sees a lithe, relaxed Elvis singing to fans. Finally there is a docu-drama on Elvis' final days.

It certainly made for great viewing. The King on top form. I also liked the advertisements for the 02 Exhibition shown throughout the evening.

I wasn't home most of the night, so only managed to see the documentary on Elvis' final hours. Not much new information there but still interesting but not entertaining to be reminded of all the health problems Elvis had prior to his death. Note that 'Fun In Acapulco' was on C5 a couple of days earlier as well. Well done!

I'm glad they showed Steve Binders original cut of the show , though I would have preferred the longer version, and not the cut n paste job that's floating around on DVD at the moment.
