Synopsis: 'Elvis - The Final Chapter': The story of the last years of Elvis Presley's life - as told by the people who were there with him 24 hours a day. Sheila Ryan, Elvis' long term lover speaks about her years with the star in Las Vegas, on tour, and at Graceland, as Presley entered a destructive spiral of substance abuse. Elvis' friend and personal assistant Joe Esposito talks about the star's obsession with guns, karate, his extreme generosity and the women in his life. Don Wilson, one of Elvis' boyhood pals talks of their friendship along with many other close friends and co-stars including Sheree North, Mary Ann Mobley and Diane McBain. Find out about the extraordinary control that Colonel Tom Parker had over Elvis, and the real story of why Priscilla finally left Elvis for the Karate instructor Mike Stone.

'Elvis Lives On': Elvis Aaron Presley, also known simply as Elvis, was an American singer, musician and actor. He is regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century and is often referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll" or simply "the King". His energised interpretations of songs and provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across colour lines during a transformative era in race relations, led him to great success. This film showcases the Elvis phenomenon; and how the "King" controversially gave birth to Rock and Roll in an era of conservatism and conformity. Includes Bonus Material: Elvis performing 'Blue Suede Shoes and Heartbreak Hotel.
