The man who kept the Glastonbury tape rolling
“We could steal time, Just for one day, We can be heroes, for ever and ever”
Worth a mention in case it passed you buy is Bowie TV: Episode 10.
In it, Mark Cooper, the BBC’s head of Music TV, talks about how he had to cut the live broadcast of David Bowie's headline slot at Glastonbury short after just three songs...much to the dismay of the viewing public watching at home.
Thankfully he had the good sense to carry on recording regardless of what the BBC were allowed to broadcast, a decision he should be applauded for as we wouldn’t all be able to watch the full set now if he hadn’t.
