“Five years stuck on my eyes”

 

Last week we told you that the Radio Times would be publishing a front-cover Bowie feature today, and what do you know? They have.

You can scroll across the images above to view the spreads inside the magazine, but if you want to read the two-page feature about Steve Turner’s personal encounters with a pre-fame Bowie, we’re afraid you’ll have to splash out £1.60 at your local weekly TV listings publication outlet.

Turner’s feature is followed by two pages of contributions from half a dozen folk that crossed Bowie’s path at some point during his career.

In case you missed it last time, here’s the blurb from the Radio Times site:

 

David Bowie - Five Years: The Making Of An Icon

9:20pm - 10:50pm - BBC2, BBC2 HD

 

Documentary exploring five key years in the singer's career, which saw him redefine himself as an artist by adopting a different persona - each one marking a shift in musical direction. Featuring interviews with his collaborators, the programme focuses on five pivotal years in Bowie's career as a recording artist - from 1971's ultimate glam-rock icon Ziggy Stardust and reinvention as the impeccably dressed soul stylist the Thin White Duke in 1975, to his regeneration in Berlin with the critically acclaimed 1977 album Heroes, 1980's Scary Monsters triumph and Let's Dance's global success in 1983.

Executive Producer - Phil Dolling
