A new documentary on David Bowie, titled David Bowie: The First Five Years, will focus on his early years as a singer. It is set to be released next year.
The documentary, currently in the making, will be a prequel to David Bowie: Five Years and David Bowie: The Last Five Years previously aired on the BBC, in 2013 and 2017, respectively.
Francis Whately, who had a long career at the BBC, made the first two Bowie documentaries. BBC is producing the third documentary as well.
The documentary will narrate Bowie's life from 1962-67, the period when the artist, known as David Jones, told his parents about his decision to become a pop star and was part of bands such as the Konrads, King Bees, The Manish Boys, The Lower Third and the Buzz.
Bowie intended to quit music and reportedly enrolled in a dance class after his first solo single "The Laughing Gnome" and his debut album David Bowie failed to chart in 1967.
