Discovering: David Bowie

Discovering: David Bowie

Series 2



The unannounced comeback of David Bowie triggered an internet frenzy in January 2013. Such is people’s fascination with the pop chameleon that a tribute exhibition became the fastest seller in the history of the Victoria and Albert Museum.

This opportune catchup take us through his many alter egos (from Major Tom to Goblin King) and the people who influenced him: Little Richard, mime artist Lindsay Kemp and, refreshingly, first wife Angie, who often gets ignored in such profiles.


Documentary exploring the life and career of musician and actor David Bowie, who returned to the top of the charts in 2013 with The Next Day, his first album in a decade. Music critics and DJs offer their thoughts on the London-born artist's colourful career and enduring success.
