Unseen David Bowie footage to be aired
A Top of the Pops performance by the legendary singer-songwriter David Bowie, performing his song The Jean Genie, was thought to have been lost forever, the BBC reported.
However, after being found last week, discovered by cameraman John Hensall – it will now be shown as part of the Top of the Pops Christmas Special.
"Bowie singing The Jean Genie is electric and the kind of piece of archive that not only brings back how brilliant Top Of The Pops could be, but also how a piece of archive can speak to us down the years," Mark Cooper, executive producer of Top Of The Pops 2, told the BBC.
"I can't imagine what other piece of Top of the Pops from the early Seventies would be as extraordinary a find."
Bowie meanwhile has given no indication as to whether he will release new music.
The star hasn't produced a new album since 2003, when he released Reality.
