本作に収録されているのは、英国BBC制作が近年になって制作したデヴィッド・ボウイ特番「DAVID BOWIE & THE STORY OF ZIGGY STARDUST」。近年とは言ってもボウイ生前に制作されたもので、彼の少年時代から『ALADDIN SANE』までの初期キャリアを綴っていくものです。
正直に言ってドキュメンタリーだけに英語が不得手な方には内容を正確に理解するのは難しいのですが、それでも貴重な映像の重みやムードが凄い。エルトン・ジョンからRUNNAWAYS、当時の関係者、トレバー・ボルダーやウッディ・ウッドマンジーといったバンドメンバー、ミック・ロンソンの娘、はてはボウイの少年期の友人までが登場。そこへ彼らが現実に出会い、過ごした当時のボウイの写真が次から次へと流れ出る。もちろん、極初期から『ALADDIN SANE』までのパフォーマンス映像も随所に登場します。これがなんとも凄いのです。普通のミュージシャンであれば、ただの子どもから汚いロック野郎になっていくだけのところですが、本作の主役はあのボウイ。写真や宣材写真、オフショットだけでも移り変わっていく姿が面白い。その上、リアルタイムの彼を直視した新聞や雑誌の映像、熱狂するファンの姿も絡められていくので「ジギー」が形作られ、呼吸していた時代の空気感まで丸ごと伝えてくれるのです。
