How did a shy boy from Tupelo, Mississippi become one of the biggest stars in music? The two-part documentary - Elvis Presley: The Searcher - from HBO, follows the King’s creative journey, from his 1940s childhood through to the legendary 1976 recording sessions made in Graceland’s Jungle Room.
There are new interviews with the musicians and technicians who worked with Elvis, the stars influenced by him, and the family and loved ones who knew him best.
Director Thom Zimny, whose CV includes the superlative Bruce Springsteen film The Ties That Bind, had exclusive access to unseen footage and photos, giving a fresh take on a story that Elvis fans know so well.
