On 6 July 1972, David Bowie, with a flame-orange cockade quiff, lavishly applied make-up, wearing a multi-coloured jumpsuit that looked as though it were made from fluorescent fish skin, and carrying a brand spanking new blue acoustic guitar, made his third appearance on Top of the Pops.
It was this performance that properly resonated with Bowie’s audience, and caused a seismic shift in the zeitgeist, embedding the Ziggy Stardust persona into the nation’s consciousness.
