(David Bowie)

David Bowie: Five Years in the Making of an Icon will be broadcast on BBC Knowledge channel 184 DStv on March 12 at 21h00.

David Bowie is widely recognised as one of the most daring and innovative performers of the 20th century, boasting both critical and commercial success since his early days in the 1960s and influencing popular culture ever since.

With unprecedented access to David Bowie’s personal archive, including previously unseen footage, this film offers a unique opportunity to explore Bowie’s work and creative vision and shows him not just as the rock star chameleon, but also as an artist drawing on rich and diverse cultural influences.
