Index and Acknowledgements

What follows is a transcript of the interview that played on Bravo Profiles in April 2001. I did my best to get it word for word (excluding some stuttering). I've divided it into several sections for easier reading, but kept the original sequence. Where it seems to jump is mostly because there was interspersed concert and video footage. I fully acknowledge Alan Yentob, David Bowie, the BBC, Bravo, and everyone else I don't know the names of who worked on it.
