Alison Ellwood directs this official documentary exploring the history of the iconic US rock band. Formed in Los Angeles in 1971, the band established themselves as one of the foremost music acts of the '70s with seven number one singles, including arguably their best known song 'Hotel California'. Featuring a blend of archive material, performance footage and even home movies recorded by the band members, the documentary aims to evoke the highs and lows of their long career. This three-disc set includes History of the Eagles Part One and History of the Eagles Part Two, as well as Eagles Live At The Capital Centre - March 1977, featuring never-before-released performances from the Eagles’ two-night stand at Washington, D.C.’s Capital Center during the legendary Hotel California tour.
Unplugged 1994 Previously Unreleased Second Night Following years of public speculation, the Eagles formally reunited in 1994, 14 years after splitting up in 1980. The line-up comprised the five Long Run-era members - Glen Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Don Felder, and Timothy B. Schmit - supplemented by Scott Crago (drums), John Corey (keyboards, guitar, backing vocals), Timothy Drury (keyboards, guitar, backing vocals), and Al Garth (sax, violin) on stage. For the record, we never broke up, we just took a 14-year vacation , announced Frey at their first live performance in April 94. The ensuing tour spawned the live album, Hell Freezes Over (named for Henley's recurring statement that the group would get back together when hell freezes over ), which debuted at number one on the Billboard album chart…
Deep in the Bavarian Alps, Adolf Hitler ordered the building of a giant Nazi Party headquarters. He called it 'The Fuhrer Territory'. In this 10 sq. kilometre area, surrounded by SS and Gestapo guards with orders to kill on sight, luxury homes were built for the Fuhrer and his Nazi Elite. There were guest houses, a hotel, a farm, a cinema, a nursery, an underground communications centre and giant bunkers for the military high command and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
And above it all loomed THE EAGLE'S NEST, a mountaintop fortress 6,000 feet up on the top of a sheer mountain peak, which could only be reached by a deep tunnel and a secret elevator shaft. Here, in the mountains Hitler made his most important decisions and his monstrous plans for the slaughter of millions and the subjugation of Europe. Here, he received Kings and heads of state and diplomats, many of whose countries would fall into his clutches. This was the place where he kept his jealously guarded mistress, Eva Braun and here many other Nazi leaders chose to live and raise their families. THE EAGLE'S NEST is a unique insight into Hitler's sercret power base and the rise and fall of the Nazi party.
