David Bowie – Changes: Bowie at Fifty

David Bowie in an interview with Alan Yentob, produced by Julian Birkett
A Co-production of Monarda Arts / RM Arts and BBC


Ever since he burst on to the music scene in the early 1970s, David Bowie has been one of rock’s most consistently inventive performers. Driven by manic creativity and restless energy he has constantly assumed new roles, each signalling a change of personal and musical direction. In a wide-ranging interview Bowie talks about his many reinventions of himself and his music, and these remarkable changes are charted in memorable performance extracts and archive film.
