UK TV programs featuring Elvis

Post by Alan » Tue Jul 31, 2018 8:11 am

There's more to it than this list when you consider that news items have not been listed other than "Elvis goes into the army" and "Elvis has died".
In the UK there was a series in the 1960's called Juke Box Jury, based on the US series Jukebox Jury. Hardly any of these shows have survived other than two. The Beatles appearance as the whole judging panel has come to light from a reel to reel audio recording of the broadcast syched up to footage on 8mm of the broadcast. The Rolling Stones appearance the following year had information that was retained due to their profile. Both this and the Beatles shows featured Elvis records being played on TV. We do not know what other shows may have featured Elvis songs.
On top of that, ITV was split into different franchise regions. Some had differing program guides and as you'll see from the list one would show an Elvis film and the rest would show something totally different. Trying to track down copies of the TV listings guide, TV Times, that is also from the right region to establish the broadcast time has proved difficult. If anyone has any information to update this please reply.
At the end of 1974 there's one film shown on ITV, but we think there was more, like one a week for so many weeks, but we can't find any copies of TV Times for those weeks to find out, so if anyone has access please let us know the info.
It would be great to have other threads from other countries done in the same format, so if anyone has that info please get in touch and lets get in included on here. Some dates are linked straight to the respective date in the chronological photo+ library.
