David Bowie: Legacy, presented by Mark Goodier

David Bowie's presence in the world of music, and his influence on the entire artistic world, were so all-embracing that it's sometimes impossible, even now, to persuade yourself that he isn't still with us. In terms of his incredible, ever-changing creativity, of course, he still is, and that's where this affectionate and stirring new tribute comes in.

As we move towards the end of the year of his startling and sad departure, David Bowie: Legacy commemorates the everlasting impression he's left on us all. The programme features a generous selection of material from the brand new Bowie retrospective, also called Legacy, and the documentary is vividly illustrated by contributions from famous fans, chart contemporaries and collaborators.

To the soundtrack of such landmark, signature songs as 'Ashes To Ashes,' 'Fashion,' 'Under Pressure,' 'Modern Love,' 'This Is Not America' and 'Absolute Beginners,' we'll hear Bowie tributes and memories from Melanie C to Jack Savoretti and from fellow '80s hitmakers such as Jazzie B of Soul II Soul, Junior Giscombe, Marilyn and Mark King of Level 42.

Longtime producer and confidant Tony Visconti will describe his working relationship with Bowie, Nile Rodgers will recall the sessions that produced 'China Girl' and 'Let's Dance' and Paul Young remembers hanging backstage with him at Live Aid. It's a unique celebration of the undying legacy of David Bowie.
