David Bowie's Stage Play Lazarus Film Finally Broadcast
Just before his death five years ago David Bowie created a stage play based around the life of Thomas Jerome Newton, the alien from “The Man Who Fell to Earth”. Previously unseen footage was streamed at the weekend.
The surreal musical was created by Bowie and writer Enda Walsh, featuring new versions of many of Bowie’s classic songs, and on a futuristic stage with multimedia effects. It was performed to sold-out crowds in New York in 2015 and London in 2016. It starred Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”) as Newton, who is trapped in an apartment and suffering from delusions some time after the events of the film.
“Inspired by the book, The Man Who Fell To Earth, Lazarus focuses on Thomas Newton, as he remains still on Earth - a ’man’ unable to die, his head soaked in cheap gin and haunted by a past love. We follow Newton during the course of a few days where the arrival of another lost soul - might set him finally free.”
Unfortunately most fans thought that this powerful work from one of the most creative stars of the 20th century was lost. However one of the London performances was videoed with multiple cameras and the edited version - a complex and immersive, but challenging finale to Bowie’s stellar career - was finally streamed at the weekend.
Researchers working on any documentaries about Bowie’s life and work will want to investigate this as part of their search for compelling and rare material.

The founder of Reelin’ In The Years Productions is Executive Producer of ’ How Can You Mend A Broken Heart’ the new documentary, directed by Frank Marshall, about the legendary Bee Gees.
David Peck, founder and President of Reelin’ In The Years Productions, says, “I was heavily involved in guiding White Horse Pictures in the direction of footage, not just in my archive, but others, that I thought fit the scene, and gave advice on historical accuracy as each cut developed. In the documentary, there is an incredible amount of home (8mm) movie footage from the Bee Gees own archive, and I know a lot about how they should look when they are properly transferred. These Bee Gees films were transferred many years ago and when I saw them in the earlier cut of the film I practically begged them to re-transfer them, which they did, and the results are night and day. In addition, a very large part of the archive in this film (separate from what is owned by the Bee Gees) was licensed by Reelin’ In The Years.”
There are a lot more exciting projects coming up with White Horse Pictures that with the major music archive. Since 1992, Reelin’ In The Years Productions has been recognized as a world leader in footage licensing. The archive houses over 20,000 hours of music footage spanning 90 years and 7,000 hours of in-depth interviews with the 20th century’s icons of Film and Television, Politics, Comedy, Literature, Art, Science, Fashion and Sports, filmed between 1962-2012. The interviews are primarily from the archives of Sir David Frost, The Merv Griffin Show, Rona Barrett and Brian Linehan’s City Lights from Canada.
