1 I guess I was one of the first to come out and say that I'm making use of rock and roll.'

David Bowie is probably the most complex star to have been spawned by the lock era. At a time when American rock and rollers were coming off the production line, he was searching for individual means of expression Even now, you can't pin him down - he has too many faces.

With his help and that of others, this four-part series will show some of those faces and perhaps shed more light on the man behind tiem. 1: Love You 'Til Tuesday

A four-part series. 2: Changes

Eventually the pop star Bowit was to emeige from the remnants of all the early persona

- at least ' Ziggy Stardust ' was to emerge, and he and Bowie were not necessarily one and the same. Whatever the case, one of them was making a lot of impact.

3: The Jean Genie

THE SPIDERS probably suffered much more of an identity crisis than ' Ziggy Stardust ,' who. before their very eyes, became Aladdin Sane' and then a Diamond Dog.' The shapes of things were never still as the Genie worked his spells.

A four-part series. 4: Rebel Rebel

BOWIE'S vision of a world in chaos came to an end with Diamond Dogs. The album which followed, Young Americans, was a pure attempt to mirror American radio 1975, and succeeded to the extent that it gave him an American number 1. Then came his star ring role in The Man Who Fell to Earth. Today you may recognise him as ' the Uiin white Duke ' - on the other hand he may well be wearing his next new guise.
