22. (UK TV) BBC 1987 Re-Broadcast of the original edit and audio mix (pre DVD) of “Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” (1973): This 1973 concert film directed by D.A. Pennebaker (Monterey Pop, Jimi Plays Monterey, Depeche Mode 101, etc.) documenting the final show of Ziggy Stardust (David Bowie) & the Spiders from Mars (Mick Ronson, Trevor Bolder, & Mick “Woody” Woodmansey)provides a rare glimpse into Bowie’s glam rock period. It is a loud & flashy assault on the senses that is experienced through both “sound” & “vision”. Film footage mostly consists of the performance, but also included are back stage scenes of Bowie changing from one costume to another.
Songs performed:
1) Hang on to yourself
2) Ziggy Stardust
3) Watch that man
4) Medley: Wild eyed boy from Freecloud/All the young dudes/Oh you pretty things
5) Moonage Daydream
6) Changes
7) Space Oddity
8) My death
9) Crack’d Actor
10) Time
11) Width of a circle
12) Let’s spend the night together
13) Suffragette City
14) White light/white heat
15) Rock & Roll Suicide
Leonard Maltin dismisses this film as “practically unwatchable and unlistenable” which would only be true for people who either dislike Bowie or the style of music. Yes, the music is sometimes loud, the focus is blurry here & there, and the strobe lights go crazy, but this is a David Bowie rock concert from the 1970s, isn’t that appropriate? Anyone who is interested in either David Bowie or the glam rock era of the 1970s will find this film essential. For one, it is the only film document of David Bowie’s Ziggy/glam phase and for another it is the “last concert” with “the Spiders” including Mick Ronson, who was a part of Bowie’s band since the 1969 album “Space Oddity” up until ’73’s “Pin Ups”. Bowie would, by 1974, have a new back up band, as well as a new look. This film deserves preservation on DVD as the historical document that it is.
*Look quickly for Ringo Starr talking with Bowie backstage

25. Glass Spider Tour November 6 & 7, 1987 Sydney Australia: Bowie in the 80’s. People always just say it is throwaway music, I understand what they mean, but there is WAY more to it than that my friends. The 80’s had some damn good stuff. Ok, back to Bowie. He starts off the decade with some radical albums, Lodgers, Scary Monsters are two great examples, and for those of you must have a “hit”, check out the classic “Fashion” remember that one kids? Then the super success of Let’s Dance, and the follow ups Never Let Me Down and Tonight, which I guess get the tag of “80’s sounding” dating. Ok, this tour is THE 80’s document of Bowie live in concert. YES, people can’t get past the giant spider and theatrics of the shows, but this is about the music man! Some of the attempts of drama and skits and such I think are actually pretty cool, some falls flat, but again, THE MUSIC MAN!! Bowie’s vocals are so damn good on this! The band is kick ass, period. The superb Carlos Alomar on guitar, and special guest (and childhood friend of Bowie) Peter Frampton! Frampton wails away on this tour, and his soloing is just excellent. Watch for a special vocal appearance by Peter on this on a older, more obscure Bowie Tune (Sons Silent Age). Carmine Rojas is fantastic on bass, and the drummer and keyboards hang right in there plus his guests Charlie Sexton is fabulous. Bowie Put his all into this concert and still remains Mr. Cool. List of songs:
1.Up The Hill Backwards
2.Glass Spider
3.Day-In Day-Out
4.Bang Bang
5.Absolute Beginners

67. David Bowie Under Review 1976-1979 The Berlin Trilogy 11/21/2006: David Bowie is one of the most influential and important artists of the 20th century (and beyond). His work in Berlin with Brian Eno was a critical advance in music both on a personal artistic level and in music history. Then there’s just the bizarreness of choosing to move to a city walled in by the Soviet Union. And while Bowie gives up the elaborate dress and make-up, he trades it for the basic dress and understated make-up of a German Hausfrau. This is a work of documentation and interpretation. If you are looking for insight into David Bowie’s work at the time, this video provides what no other does. It’s not a concert or music video extravaganza and there are plenty of those to satisfy us all.
But serious reporting about artists is rare, much rarer than musical performances, and can be of more value to the interested fan. This program features live and studio performances by Bowie, rare interviews, and a host of other features all interspersed with the independent review and criticism from a panel of esteemed experts. These include former members of both Neu! And Cluster (and key Bowie influences) Dieter Moebius and Michael Rother; broadcaster, journalist, and ambient author Mark Prendergast; author and Melody Maker/Mojo journalist David Stubbs; journalist and author Daryl Easlea; style aficionado Paolo Hewitt; and many others.

Extras include: Extended Interviews, Special feature, ‘Bowie After Berlin’, Interactive digital David Bowie quiz, Beyond DVD section and more.

David Bowie The Video Archives 2012-2013 Volume XIX

68. David Bowie &The Story Of Ziggy Stardust 06/22/2012: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars is arguably the most important album in the mind-blowing career of David Bowie. Released in 1972, it’s the record that set the mercurial musician on course to becoming one of the best-known pop stars on the planet. In just over a year, Bowie’s messianic Martian invaded the minds of the nation’s youth with a killer combination of extraterrestrial rock ‘n’ roll and outrageous sexuality, all delivered in high-heeled boots, multi-coloured dresses and extravagant make-up. In Bowie’s own words, Ziggy was ‘a cross between Nijinsky and Woolworths’, but this unlikely culture clash worked – Ziggy turned Bowie into stardust. This documentary tells the story of how Bowie arrived at one of the most iconic creations in the history of pop music. The songs, the hairstyles, the fashion and the theatrical stage presentation that merged together to turn David Bowie into the biggest craze since the Beatles. Ziggy’s instant success gave the impression that he was the perfectly-planned pop star. But, as the film reveals, it had been a momentous struggle for David Bowie to hit on just the right formula that would take him to the top. Narrated by fan Jarvis Cocker, it reveals Bowie’s mission to the stars through the musicians and colleagues who helped him in his unwavering quest for fame – a musical voyage that led Bowie to doubt his true identity, eventually forcing the sudden demise of his alien alter ego, Ziggy.

David Bowie The Video Archives 2017 Volume XXI

1. BBC 2’s “The Last Five Years” Air Date: 7th of January 2017: There was nothing predictable about David Bowie. Everything was designed to intrigue, to challenge, to defy all expectations. But perhaps no period in David Bowie’s extraordinary career raised more fascination, more surprise, and more questions than the last five years. This is an intimate portrait of one of the defining artists of the twentieth and early twenty first centuries, told by the people who knew him best – his friends and artistic collaborators.
This film takes a detailed look at Bowie’s last albums, The Next Day and Blackstar, and his play Lazarus. In his final five years, Bowie not only began producing music again, but returned to the core and defining themes of his career. This film explores how Bowie was a far more consistent artist than many interpretations of his career would have us believe. It traces the core themes from his final works and relates them to his incredible back catalogue. His urge to communicate feelings of spirituality, alienation and fame underpin his greatest works from the 1960s to 2016. This is what lies at the heart of his success and appeal – music that deals with what it means to be human in a way that goes far beyond the normal palette of a rock star.
The film is not a comprehensive overview of his entire career, but an in-depth exploration of pivotal moments that show how the themes, the narrative and the approach is consistent – it is simply the palette that changes. The film includes every key member of the Next Day band, the Blackstar band and those who worked with him on the stage play Lazarus. In addition, old friends and colleagues are on hand to explore how the work of the last five years relates to Bowie’s back catalogue. And, as in David Bowie: Five Years, there is a wealth of unseen and rare archive footage. Duration (1 Hour 29 Minutes)

2. BBC 2’s on-line only “exclusive companion film: The Last Supper”  On-Line Air Date: 7th of January 2017: David Bowie inspired and challenged his musicians. But what did they think of him? Here, some of the star’s longest-serving players – Earl Slick, Mike Garson, Gerry Leonard, Catherine Russell and Sterling Campbell – get together over a meal to discuss their old boss.
