HBO acquired the U.S. rights to the documentary from the BBC.In the newly released teaser trailer, you can hear Bowie speak about the concept of creativity and his approach to exploring it. As he explains, “Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in and when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.”You can watch the new trailer for David Bowie: The Last Five Years, below, courtesy of Billboard:David Bowie: The Last Five Years, directed and produced by Francis Whately, follows Whately’s 2013 documentary, David Bowie: Five Years which covered Bowie’s career from 1970 to 1975 in addition to taking its title from the opening song on Bowie’s 1972 classic, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars.For further information about the soon-to-be-released new David Bowie documentary on HBO, or to set a reminder about its release date, head to the network’s website.[h/t – Billboard]last_img read more

Chance leads rivals a merry dance

first_img Settled towards the rear by Kevin Manning, the top weight made stealthy headway before striking the front at the furlong pole. Jim Bolger’s 5/1 chance came clear, and though Magnolia Beach sneaked up the inner to mount a serious challenge in the closing stages, Chance To Dance was too strong, scoring by half a length. Chance To Dance produced an excellent weight-carrying performance to land the valuable Irish Stallion Farms EBF ‘Nasrullah’ Handicap at Leopardstown. Bolger said: “There’s a little race at Naas on Wednesday for him (Michael Higgins And Co. Race), then I’ll apologise to him and give him a break. “He will be okay as he has been turned out quickly before and we can’t pass up an opportunity. “We will school him for the Champion Hurdle after that! I think he could be the real deal over jumps. “He goes on any ground and six furlongs to a mile and a half is all the same to him. All my horses jump and he’ll be no different.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
