BBC Presents David Bowie's " 5 Years Documentary " Watch It Here !



For those of us outside of the UK who are too lazy to torrent it, some kind soul has uploaded a quite nice copy of director/producer Francis Whately new film about the radical changes in David Bowie’s work from 1971 to 1983. (The “five years” aren’t consecutive, you see. I’d have done 72-77 myself, but hey, it’s not my documentary.)
Similar stylistically to Martin Scorsese’s docs on Bob Dylan and George Harrison (which I thought sucked, frankly, they were aimless and formless films) Whately was able to uncover loads of previously unseen footage for this 90-minute film. Probably the best of the recent spate of Bowie TV hagiographies.
