Obviously with such a variety of sources, there will be much variation in both sound and vision. My subjective grading given reflects the overall feeling one has when having watched this VCD. Therefore I have included an Overall Quality score, which in this case has to be CCCCC.
Don't be without it!

INCLUDES: Bowie performed "Golden Years" (playback) and "Fame" (playback). He was also interviewed before his performance.
ADDITIONAL FACTS: Bowie had been drinking to calm his nerves before the show. It showed. He spoke thickly, with disconnected sentences during the interview.
THE INTERVIEW anchorman: We're very proud to have with us one, who is easily one of the worlds most popular and important music-personalities. A great welcome, gang, for the gifted singer, composer, producer; Mr David Bowie.
David Bowie: Thank you.
anchor: Hi David.
anchor: Nice to have you with us. And I think our folks would probably like to ask you some questions after...
Bowie: ...I'd adore to answer them...
anchor: ...after I get my dumb ones out of the way.
Bowie: Oh, yes! I have some dumb answers.
anchor: I understand you just did a film?
Bowie: Yes. Um...the director of the film is called Nicholas Roeg, who started out as someone I didn't know and ended up as a friend of mine. And it's called The Man Who Fell To Earth and it's a bit like a Howard Hughes story. But he's... he's sort of an alien. But he doesn't look like a sort of an alien.
anchor: What part did you play in the film?
anchor: /.?./, fantastic.
Bowie: Yeah, but it's one person, but it looks like it.
anchor: Uh huh. And you're also doing a world tour soon that will take you to Russia.
Bowie: Yes, I hope so. We've asked if we can play in Russia.
anchor: Have any other contemporary music acts played in Russia, that you know of?
anchor: So you'll start in the United States and go around the world probably and among the countries...
Bowie: ...and end up in the United States again.
anchor: And end up in the United States again, fantastic. Let's see what we've got here...
Audience member: Hi, my name is Ella Walker and I would like to know; do you plan on doing any soundtracks for movies?
Bowie: I'm doing the soundtrack for The Man Who Fell To Earth (laughs) with a friend of mine, Paul Buckmaster.
Audience member: Yes, my name is David Vincent and is it true that you're gonna be teamin' up with Elisabeth Taylor to do a film?
Audience member: Yes, my name is Glen Stafford and I like to know when did you actually start getting into soul music? You know, when did you start wanting to do soul music? I mean you're doin' it know! (laughs)
Bowie:(laughs) Um...getting into it? Well, back in England you see...when I was a teenager popping 'em you know...I don't know it's a similar expression over here...on street corners, we have street corners in London (David laughs at his own joke but nobody knows what the hell he's talking about)...and we used to go to a lot of clubs and James Brown was very popular...about then...I was about seventeen then.
anchor: OK, David I think we have to move on to your first song, which I believe is your latest single?
Bowie: Yes, it's called Golden Years.
anchor: OK, gang, how about it one more time for David Bowie. (audience applaud)
