Unseen David Bowie footage to be aired

Unseen footage of David Bowie performing on Top of the Pops will be aired tonight.
Rare David Bowie to be show on TV
Fans of one of the biggest music stars the world has ever seen will be in for a treat tonight (December 21st) as unseen footage of a forgotten performance will be aired on TV.

A Top of the Pops performance by the legendary singer-songwriter David Bowie, performing his song The Jean Genie, was thought to have been lost forever, the BBC reported.

However, after being found last week, discovered by cameraman John Hensall – it will now be shown as part of the Top of the Pops Christmas Special.

"Bowie singing The Jean Genie is electric and the kind of piece of archive that not only brings back how brilliant Top Of The Pops could be, but also how a piece of archive can speak to us down the years," Mark Cooper, executive producer of Top Of The Pops 2, told the BBC.

"I can't imagine what other piece of Top of the Pops from the early Seventies would be as extraordinary a find."

Bowie meanwhile has given no indication as to whether he will release new music.

The star hasn't produced a new album since 2003, when he released Reality.
