Taped the previous week, David Bowie’s appearance on Top Of The Pops with Space Oddity was broadcast fifty years ago tonight on 9th October, 1969.
The single had reached #13 and it would continue its ascent of the UK chart till it peaked at #5.
Sadly, the tape was wiped by the BBC, but were you lucky enough to catch this historic performance?
