Thanks for sharing that - my dad's birthday is the same day as Elvis' death (the day and month, not the year) so it's a bit of a 'flashbulb moment' for him. From what I've read elsewhere on the web, initial rumours of his death were reported at the end of News at Ten before ITN came on air immediately after the break with a newsflash confirming the news.
Another fascinating clip, audio only, is of John Peel announcing the news on his Radio 1 show. Note that he decides not to turn the programme into a tribute and continues with the normal show.
(This was originally uploaded to SoundCloud
but in an annoying fake stereo with the clip inverted on one channel, which means it doesn't fold down to mono meaning it sounds like there is no sound on a mobile speaker, so I have converted it to mono for your enjoyment).
