First Aired: May 7, 2008

A powerful profile of Marvin Gaye (1939-1984) that makes generous use of archival clips and a vintage Gaye interview to paint a picture of the talented, troubled man behind such classics as "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" and "What's Going On."

Jesse L. Martin narrates.
