So as many of you know the fabled Roundhouse film included not just Genesis but apparently Bowie too. I thought it couldnt hurt to ask of any Bowie nuts in the Steve Hofan Forum knew anything about it. There was the alleged screening in England but my own personal efforts resulted in not finding a single person in attendance assuming it happened who could say anything about it
The guy with the film had an I Turner presence trying to raise money for restoration or so he claimed but all contacts for him are now descends and no recent t year info exists. Well for what it's worth AI for a response in a Bowie thread saying the guy had been there, seen it, and the Genesis material was the highlight. Unfortunately he said no more. I figured a polite pm to ask of he might please tell me more about what he saw and heard couldnt hurt. I'll update of O get any response. Of course if any of you saw it, please tell what songs did they have or extra footage sile r or otherwise beyond what we've all seen on the short YouTube video and audio snippet of stagnation.
In case it's of use here is my post andthe response. By all means I'd any of you have an SH forum account and are better question ask see fo ahes bur I asked by PM the relevant stuff so as said if a response is received I'll share it.
Personally I think its utter crap management didnt pay the guy even if pricey considering they must have the funds I'dthey really wanted it. Genesis is no hole on the wall band even if not as lucrative as the Beatles FFS it's their earliest documentation, how does one not care enough about or to get it...

Whether that went through in reality I don't know. The guy who has the private copy that was to put together the airing in theaters was and has been hard ro find any extant fo tact information from. He apparently wanted a "ridiculous" amount so it was claimed to provide a copy or part with it. have heard the rumors that Yoko Ono was involved in financing or setting it up and so maybe a copy exists in apple. I come to ask this having been made aware as a Genssis nut and both Bowie and Genesis having been filmed at this show ( and in Genesis's case its rhe earliest known footage of them). I assume this would be the earliest video of Bowie, is that correct? It definitely exists, snippets by the holder of the Genesis portion were released. No one I the Genesis fandom seems to know anything beyond what I summarized. Anyone here amongst the Bowie experts know anything else? Small glimmer of hope that maybe through Bowie fans it will see light one day and in doing so the Genssis portion too.The film showing did happen, I went. The highlight was the Genesis footage
