Marc Bolan’s TV show, “Marc” ran for 6 weekly episodes in the Autumn of 1977, before Bolan died in a car crash on September 16th that year. A po music show of sorts, it gave Bolan a chance to showcase punk bands such as Generation X, The Jam and Eddie and the Hot Rods. T. Rex performed at least three songs each week, a mixture of new versions of their old hits, and fresh tracks, while the guests were slotted in between.

The last episode featured Bolan duetting with his friend David Bowie. Before the song had reached its end, Bolan tripped over a microphone cable and fell off the stage. Bowie is said to have called out “Could we have a wooden box for Marc [to stand on]?”.

The final show was recorded on September 7th 1977, but not broadcast until after Bolan’s funeral on September 20th 1977.
