At the height of his success, Marc Bolan was as big as The Beatles and bigger than Bowie, flamboyantly entertaining his millions of adoring fans. This in-depth new program, MARC BOLAN: RIDE ON, features many of Bolan's famous hits such as Ride a White Swan, Get it On and presents the dramatic story of Marc Bolan, and his determined climb to success. Authorised by Marc's son, Rolan Bolan, the programme is packed with exclusive interviews and private, rare and for the first time seen, footage of Marc Bolan doing what he did best - performing. It includes many interviews with Bolan's celebrity and non-celebrity friends all providing fascinating insights into a career spanning two decades detailing his musical development from Mystical, Glam Rock right up to the beginnings of the Punk revolution. Also for the first time Bolan's long-time lover Gloria Jones provides her own very personal insight into the man, his motivations and the events that led up to the night the legend and one of the most original and colourful artists of all time tragically died at the age of just 29.
