Tim is to present a three part documentary on Absolute Radio about the life and career of David Bowie this month.

The first part of the series will focus on Bowie’s early life in post-war Brixton and career up to Ziggy (1947-1973), the second on the golden era of the Thin White Duke to Scary Monsters (1973-1980), while the last part will range from Let’s Dance to the new album The Next Day (1980 to 2013) and the V&A’s current David Bowie Is exhibition.

The story will be told by the friends and musicians who have played a part in Bowie’s life over six decades and it includes contributions from Bowie’s childhood friend and artist George Underwood, touring guitarist John “Hutch” Hutchinson and his guitarist Mick Ronson’s widow Suzi.

BOWIE will be broadcast, in three hour-long episodes, on Absolute Radio here, at 7pm on consecutive Sundays: the 7th, 14th and 21st April 2013. There will be also be a series of short online films featuring additional material and interviews. It will air again and be available on the website during the term of the exhibition at the V&A (until 11th August).

So if your inner Bowie nerd is crying out for your rock ‘n’ roll nerd to tell you all about that amazingly colourful career then this is the programme for you.

UPDATE: If you’ve missed any of these episodes then you can listen again here.
