This seems to have rattled a few cages. Who knew that Jools was so well liked?
I am disappoint.
There were loads of tantalising clips of live performances from TOTP, OGWT, Later, Parkinson and so on. None lasted much more than a minute. Other than that, we had a fair amount of official videos that we can all view elsewhere. And news features. Nothing makes more excited than a news reader making an announcement. Bowie provided a voice over, cut from a variety of interviews, some of which looked, when pictures were shown, very interesting.
I expecting to see full performances of songs at various points of career. As an example, I’ve added one in this post. Sadly, that did not happen. I would happily buy a DVD of all of his performances at the Beeb but I won’t be watching this again.
There was one astonishing moment. Jools Holland asked a good question!
Fans of the beret’d one might like to know that he appeared on Later last night. iPlayer link for whole show included.
