The early parts of David Bowie's life will become the subject of a new 90-minute BBC documentary, the BBC reports. Titled The First Five Years, the film will follow two previous Bowie documentaries: David Bowie: The Last Five Years, which detailed the end of the rock giant's career, and David Bowie: Five Years. Both films were released in 2017 and 2013 respectively.
