Exciting news as BBC has announced a new documentary called David Bowie: The First Five Years.
It will be airing in the UK in 2019 which will mark the 50th anniversary of the release of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.”
The documentary will focus on the journey of Bowie to the Ziggy Stardust era. Following David Bowie: Five Years in 2013 and David Bowie: The Last Five Years in 2017.
The director, Francis Whately has said,
“Making this trilogy has been an incredible experience for me, unearthing rare recording, footage and archive, and the privilege of speaking to so many of his friends and collaborators who were so open in talking about the Bowie they knew, loved and admired so much. He is possibly now even more famous in death than in life and I hope this film will bring some new understanding to this great artist from the early years of his incredible life.”
Francis has already made two instalments of the documentary, but this third instalment will be the last, and tie it all together.
