Haddon Hall: When David Invented Bowie

Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, The Thin White Duke: David Bowie had an extraordinary talent for reinvention. But at the beginning of his career, he made the most significant transformation of his life: from David to Bowie.  In 1969, shortly after the release of his first hit single, David and his girlfriend Angie move into Haddon Hall, a sprawling Victorian house in the suburbs of London. Part commune, part creative hub, the house becomes home to a community of musicians, hippies and hangers-on. As egos clash and parties get out of hand, David keeps writing: 'Changes', 'Kooks', 'Life on Mars' – songs that will propel him to global fame.  Charting Bowie's personal life, the development of his music and the transformation of his image,  Haddon Hall is an evocative portrait of a young artist presiding over a musical revolution.
