Autopsy: Whitney Houston's Last Hours

Autopsy: Whitney Houston's Last Hours

To view this page ensure that Adobe Flash Player version 10.1.0 or greater is installed.

This episode features Whitney Houston, a singer and actress with a once-in-a-generation voice that propelled her into the pop stratosphere. No amount of talent, however, could protect her from the demons that brought about her death in a Hollywood hotel bathroom at the age of just 48.

The evidence revealed by Houston's autopsy tells an astonishing story of excess. It reveals in detail the damage done by years of abuse, from liver and heart disease caused by alcohol and smoking to the perforated septum ravaged by repeatedly snorting cocaine. The programme also uncovers the cocktail of drugs that contributed to the star's death, from prescription medications to marijuana and freebase cocaine.

Most importantly, the evidence offers a unique insight into the final minutes of Houston's life alone in a bathroom, finally revealing the causes of her death, how she died, and the desperate battle to save her life.

    I watched this with my boyfriend's mum the other day but I missed half of it, so I want to watch the full episode, but it won't let me. Shame, I was really looking forward to watching it.

    Some saying they couldn't play this episode... It played fine on my laptop... Very sad documentary, showing fragilities of the Rich And Famous... Makes me glad that I am too poor for any of these trappings .. really...

    to the people that made these programs , as hard as it was to watch , as whitney and micheal were my idols . was pure genius , so informative and interesting, and omg the actress that played whitney , had to look twice a few times, such a sad day when all these idols left us. sadly missed , im vey interested , even though it would never come out to see this autopsy program on Marilyn Monroe and princess Diana, well done again to all involved in this program

    For me, the guilty parties in this terribly sad story are not Whitney. the drugs or her addictive traits, it's that idiot, unrepentant drug dealer DJ (who should have been arrested straight after his interview), the tabloids and paparazzi (for clearly escalating her downfall with the callous front page cover pandering to the lowest common denominator customer) and the boyfriend and his group thinking that partying with and around a known addict many years their senior (therefore greater desire for drugs but weaker tolerance through prolonged abuse) would be a good idea. Shame on all of them but not you Ms Houston.

    Right click the player >> local storage settings >> zero/ deny access. That should fix the technical issues

    This is not a good service keeps cutting out and im using virgin broadband and paying 40 pounds just for the box and phone line together and cant even watch my fave programes that ive missed because it keeps suddenly shuts off or cuts out and this should not keep on happening and if you cant have this working then close it down as its drediculous to sell a product to customers that does not work . I am not pleased at all with this service .

    It's crazy to compare teh RECORDED Whitney voice to a live whitney voice, of course they will sound diferent. Recorded voices are soo perfect, every singer sounds different live to recorded, it annoys me the wya people repot these stroies
