The NME Consumers' Guide To Marc Bolan, part 1

Paul Morley, New Musical Express, 20 September 1980

INDEPENDENT TELEVISION are currently repeating five shows from the three year old Marc series. Marc Bolan was star in and presenter of a pop show that was very much in the low budget, Muriel Young produced, early afternoon Granada tradition – the Marc season followed similar series featuring The Bay City Rollers and The Arrows. ITV are repeating the five shows following considerable pressure from members of the still substantial Marc Bolan fan club. Marc magic has lingered three years after his tragic death.
