The 70s had some major news stories that were very global and must see TV. because of the use of new technologies like satellite and high quality video recordings, that delivered colour images to our homes. which has now become must see TV from the archives.
Here we cover the death of the" King "Elvis Presley, and how various news networks covered the death and funeral..
For me I was in a training centre for some exams and when ITN news told me the breaking news in the evening, everything stopped we all watched and hoped it was wrong.
When Elvis died he had a record in the charts, obviously it went straight to Number One.
