Description by OLDIES.com:
This compelling documentary series unlocks the hidden secrets, psychological flaws and events that result in the tragic deaths of famed notorious and the iconic. Every episode maps out the final 24 hours of a different famous person's life. The series weaves the star's back-story with events from their last day, which lays bare the threads of fate that led inextricably from childhood to the moment of death. These are no ordinary biographies. They're psychological detective stories attempting to uncover the mystery of why the celebrity died. Final 24 investigates the root of Belushi's drug addiction and uncover the events that led to his final reckless act. Belushi has been battling his drug addiction for seven years. Throughout the night, he ingests the massive amount of drugs that finally get the better of him. In early March 1982, comic actor John Belushi is on a drug fueled binge in L.A. He's far from those that love him and protect him from his own excesses.
Prior to the rise of the swing era in jazz during the 1930s and 1940s that turned the form into a national idiom, the music itself predominantly existed as a regional genre - and one that grew out of New Orleans and the surrounding geographic areas. The pre-1930s period (or "early jazz") was one marked by the presence of such giants as Joe King Oliver, Freddie Keppard, Sidney Bechet, Fletcher Henderson, Ray Nance and many others, who subsequently risked being forgotten. This comprehensive program features biographical profiles of some of the "early jazz" musicians and protracted samples of their music.
