V&A Museum hosts retrospective of David Bowie's life and work


London's Victoria and Albert Museum is staging a major retrospective exhibition of the life and work of David Bowie

The singer's first album in a decade became the fastest-selling of the year earlier this week.

The Next Day is the 66-year-old's first number one since 1993's Black Tie White Noise.

Although Bowie is not directly involved with curating the V&A exhibition, the David Bowie Archive gave the London museum "unprecedented access" to pick out flamboyant costumes, early photographs and other memorabilia. David Sillito went to have a look.
