A 1973 concert by Elvis Presley taped at the Convention Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. This was the first program to ever be beamed around the world by satellite. Elvis Presley made television and entertainment history with his Elvis, Aloha from Hawaii concert television special. The performances took place on January 14, 1973. The concert was beamed live via Satellite to over 10 countries. It was seen on delay in approximately thirty European countries shortly after. On April 4th, an edited version of the concert, expanded with songs videotaped just after the live event, was presented in America on NBC, attracting 51% of the television viewing audience. In all, it was seen by 1-to-1.5 billion people.

The new multi-part documentary Elvis Presley: The Searcher, directed by Thom Zimny and airing on HBO on April 14, pushes past the larger-than-life image of The King of Rock and Roll, portraying him instead as a man and an artist "who wanted to heal, to find that thing that was always felt to be missing, and to do it through the music."
