This feature-length documentary offers a comprehensive profile of the King of Soul.

Sam Cook’s songs, such as “A Change is Gonna Come” and “Wonderful World” (“Don’t know much about history…”) have lasted to this very day. This programme follows not just his music, but also the events that lead to his tragic early death, when he was shot in an LA motel at the age of 33.

The Life and Death of Sam Cooke is on Sky Arts at 21.00.
