A rare David Bowie Top of the Pops performance will be shown on television for the first time since it was originally broadcast in 1973.

It was believed that every recording of the singer's performing number two hit Jean Genie had been destroyed.

This is an excerpt from the footage that will feature in a Top of The Pops Christmas Special on BBC 2.
