David Bowie’s Lift Off with Ayshea performance unearthed!!

The performance was believed lost to history when the tapes were accidentally wiped.

Almost half a century on, a recording of that appearance has been unearthed. A member of the public came forward to say they had captured the show on computer tape, a forerunner of VHS.

It is now being restored with the aim of showing it in a forthcoming BBC documentary, David Bowie: Finding Fame. “For fans, it is something of a Holy Grail,” said Francis Whately, the film-maker, in an interview with Radio Times. “It would fall apart if we played it, so it’s had to be very carefully restored. It will be a real coup if it comes off.”

David Bowie: Finding Fame will be shown on BBC Two on February 9th at 9pm.
