The programme, scheduled to air throughout April, will be presented by Aussie comedian and musician Tim Minchin.
Minchin said of the project:
“David Bowie is a master of re-invention, one of the most iconic musicians of all time and a hero of mine. His story has been told before, but never like this.”
The first part of the series will focus on Bowie’s early life and career (1947-1973), the second will stretch from 1973-1980, while the last part will include everything from 1980s onwards to new album The Next Day and the V&A’s current David Bowie Is exhibition.
The shows will air on Sunday April 7th, 14th and 21st at 7pm.
