2 x DVD set featuring exclusive & archive interviews, rare footage & performance film
Notes: Extended documentary that examines the period David Bowie spent living in Berlin in the 1970s. Overworked and struggling with drug addiction, Bowie headed to Berlin in 1975 for relief from the stresses of LA life. He lived with Iggy Pop, who was in a similarly dishevelled state. Nonetheless, Bowie produced a series of albums in Berlin that arguably rank among his best. The programme makes use of archive interviews and performance footage to bring this period of the musician's career to life.
