Marc Bolan: Cos­mic Dancer

The Guardian - G2 - - Tv and radio - David Stubbs

9pm, BBC4 Forty years af­ter his death, this pro­file of the T Rex star is nar­rated us­ing his own words. It traces his north London ori­gins, early Dy­lan pre­oc­cu­pa­tion and his ro­man­tic, nar­cis­sis­tic con­vic­tion that he was a star, vin­di­cated when he helped ini­ti­ate the glam era. He even proph­e­sied, al­beit jovially, his own demise to Si­mon Napier-bell, who is among the con­trib­u­tors. Fol­lowed by Glam Rock at the BBC, which fea­tures Bolan, among oth­ers.
