This documentary on Marc Bolan, originally shown on BBC 4, has been timed to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the teen idol's tragic death in a car crash. Narrated by fellow glam-rock star Suzi Quatro, it examines Bolan's childhood ambitions of fame and where it led him, using previously lost TV and radio interviews, rediscovered Top of the Pops recordings, unseen concert footage and unique home movies. Includes contributions from his companion Gloria Jones, brother Harry Feld, producer Tony Visconti, Queen's Roger Taylor, Steve Harley, Zandra Rhodes and more, with Visconti also deconstructing the hit single 'Ride a White Swan'.
