' I would give my life away for one hour just to see Elvis.'
(MICK HAYWOOD ,
'He can bring people together from all over the world.'
'Some feel that Elvis might be the new Messiah.'
(LARRY GELLER , Elvis's hairdresser and spiritual adviser)
Since he died on 16 August 1977, Elvis Presley has become bigger in death than in life. Filmed in England, across the USA and in Memphis on the anniversary of his death, Elvis Lives looks at the fans who live their lives for Elvis; the people who make a living from Elvis, including a Las Vegas impersonator and a Hollywood lookalikes agency; and it also takes a look at the length to which some people will go to express their adoration for the King of Rock 'n' Roll - even plastic surgery.

The last of eight programmes Christmas
Nothing brings the true meaning of prison into sharper focus than Christmas; not just a time of merriment and good cheer, but a time when families and friends gather together.
The isolation of the men inside seems all the more poignant as the authorities do their best to introduce a festive atmosphere. A tree goes up in the great central hall; decorations hang from the forbidding iron galleries and stairways; the strains of a Salvation Army band mingle with the more familiar sounds of clanging doors and rattling keys.
It is a time when, traditionally, human beings pause and take stock of their situation. And a time, perhaps, for everyone to pause and take stock of what life in prison may be doing to our fellow men.
