This programme tells the story behind the 20 greatest songs ever recorded by Elvis Presley, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
Priscilla Presley, Elvis’s ex-wife and mother to their daughter Lisa Marie Presley, is featured exclusively in the documentary, giving a rare interview about the King and his music.
Referring to Elvis’s live performance of Are You Lonesome Tonight, Priscilla says: “I went right to the first time I sat in the theatre looking up at him singing it and I thought ‘I can’t believe this person who I never thought I’d meet is singing this song to me’.”
“I’m really a little bit shy about sharing some of those moments that I had with him. There’s a part of me that savours things that were just him and myself.”
