It says the 1970's is one of the most important decades. Really looking forward to seeing this.. So glad the Unions no longer control our country like they did then.

Lee, will look out for it. I think union control would be preferable to this sham of a government. Whoops, vowed never to utter a political word on here . . .

sorry it's a 3 parter not 4.
after reading the actual tv listings rather than the small feature, it does actually state part 1 deals with bowie's ziggy persona and the inpact it has had on our culture or words similar to that. so there's possibly more bowie involvement than i first thought. also has another small pic.
it's in next weeks tv guide called what's on tv.

no it is in 4 parts i'm sorry not 3.
part one 1970-1972
and it says this first part will deal with the property boom,strikes and bowie and bolans influence on popular culture, and directly after this on same channel there's a sounds of the seventies programme again for one hour including performances from bowie,roxy,bolan and sparks amongst others.

Just posted on DB's Facebook

"BOWIE AND THE SEVENTIES ON THE BEEB TONIGHT

We may pick him up on channel 2...

Historian Dominic Sandbrook celebrates the publication this week of his latest book on the subject of the 1970s. Called Seasons in the Sun: The Battle for Britain, 1974-1979, the book is the third instalment in Sandbrook's celebration of the late 60s and the 1970s.

And while you didn't generally see chaps walking the streets in the outfit illustrated here, David Bowie's undeniable influence on the look and sound of the seventies is well represented in the first of four one hour BBC 2 shows tonight, Get It On 70-72.

The soundtrack is packed with gems of the period, including Bowie's own Starman, Oh! You Pretty Things and John, I'm Only Dancing and Mott's All The Young Dudes. This is a fair reflection of Bowie's input of the period seeing as no other artist played gets more than one track to their name.

Get It On 70-72 starts at 9:00pm with iPlayer access if you miss this first airing.

Stay tuned to the same channel at 10:00pm for Arthouse Glam - Get in the Swing - the first in a new ten-part series of Sounds Of The 70s with performances from The Kinks, Roxy Music, Elton John, New York Dolls, Queen, Sparks, Rod Stewart and the recently-rediscovered David Bowie performance of The Jean Genie on TOTP from January 1973."

Good prog this. Puts into good context just how on the edge he was. For 2 minutes, then back to long hair. The prog that is, not DB..

I liked the Jason King bit and the old fashion show footage. The programme after missed the mark by quite a big margin.

Didnt realise there would be much Bowie in it, watched the first 10 mins and found it very tedious so switched over.

I enjoyed both programs to be honest especially the first one which made me quite nostalgic. Bowie was well represented considering this is a 4 part documentary about the 70s and not! David Bowie.

Of the Sound of the 70s programme which followed it was great to see the New York Dolls again, I'd forgotten how good they actually were also the Sparks clip was great as well and made a change from the usual This Town Ain't Big Enough For The Both of Us that's usually shown in these types of thing.

All in all it bodes well for the remaining episodes.

I didn't expect anything less than yet another pile of left-wing saturated bollocks from the BBC and sure enough I got it.

If you took away the musical content (the major factor that draws an audience) one is left with a programme ridiculing its own country & folk because that is the only point of the BBC these days.

Not a single comment on Labour ballsing up the economy (yet again) but plenty of Tory bashing -- and making a few thousand Ugandan Indian immigrants comparable with the last fifteen years millions bordered on the supernatural.

I really enjoyed the programme and also felt very nostalgic I was 13 in 1970 and loved the Bowie fan who thought he was 'smashing' - bless her. I just wondered if she is still a fan and on this very website !? love on ya

Notice: It was 70-72 and they showed Bowie stuff from 73 - 74 and illustrated it in Radio Times with a picture from '69.

Yes I noticed that however I don't think things were meant to be 100 percent accurate with regards Bowies relationhip image wise etc to the first episode which dealt with 70 -72. What I mean is they just used Bowie clips from whenever just to illustrate Bowie was an icon of the whole 70's decade.
