Rare video footage of David Bowie’s first televised appearance as glam alter ego Ziggy Stardust has been uncovered. The footage of Bowie’s appearance in a forgotten premiere of ITV’s Lift Off With Ayshea has been uncovered by archivists from a fan’s home video recording, BBC reports. The footage could feature in BBC2’s forthcoming documentary, David Bowie: Finding Fame. The footage was captured by a fan on a home video recorder but has degraded and must be slowly “baked” in an incubator to restore the footage. “For fans, it is something of a Holy Grail,” Francis Whately, producer and director of David Bowie: Finding Fame, told the Radio Times. “It would fall apart if we played it, so it’s had to be very carefully restored. It will be a real coup if it comes off.” “The footage has only very recently been discovered,” said a BBC spokeswoman. “We’re hoping it will be ready in time to include in the film.” Copyright(c) 2019 RTTNews.com.
