BBC REVISITS BOWIE'S EARLY DAYS
10/8/18

A new David Bowie film is coming to the BBC documenting five years of his early career starting in 1966. Alongside influences, the doc features an early audition that the Beeb panned by at the time for being “not particularly exciting.” Funny how things change... 

The 90-minute David Bowie: The First Five Years is the last in a trilogy made by BBC Studios Productions. The film explores the Bowie before Ziggy and starts soon after David Jones changed his name to Bowie, tracing his interest in everything from Holst to Pinky and Perky, from Anthony Newley to Tibetan Buddhism. It features unheard audio recordings, archived and unpublished documents alongside exclusive interviews with Bowie’s family, friends and early collaborators.

David Bowie and the Lower Third were the band auditioning in 1965, when the BBC’s rather harsh Talent Selection Group describe him as having “quite a different sound,” but “no personality,” “not particularly exciting” and “will not improve with practice." It will air in 2019 on BBC Two—50 years after the release of Space Oddity — and will be distributed internationally.

In addition, highlights of a two-hour performance of David Bowie at Glastonbury in 2000—his first appearance at the festival since 1971—will be shown this month on BBC Four.
