SATURDAY TV; TONIGHT'S HIGHLIGHTS.
ROCK 'n' roller Buddy Holly was just 22 when he died in a plane crash with fellow musicians Richie Valens and The Big Bopper.
The ITV documentary takes a fresh look into one of the music industry's most tragic days and includes interviews with Buddy's brother, Travis, the two musicians who should have been on the plane that night, Wayne Jennings and Tommy Allsup, and the owner of the charter plane Jerry Dwyer.
Buddy rang his wife, Maria Elena, that night but did not tell her about the planned plane trip because she had had a premonition of his death in a plane crash and he didn't want to worry her.
On hearing of his death, Maria Elena suffered a miscarriage and was too distressed to attend Buddy's funeral. To this day she has never visited his grave.
