Elvis - The Comeback Special

On the 35th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley, Witness goes back to a television special that revived his career at the end of the 1960s.

At the time, Elvis was struggling to compete against new bands such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.

Witness speaks to Steve Binder, the director of what became known as the Comeback Special.
