On the program, forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Hunter takes an in-depth look at what may have led to the cancer that caused the rock legend’s death in January 2016 two days after his 69th birthday. The show also offers a profile of Bowie’s life and how he kept his illness secret from nearly the whole world.

In addition, the episode delves into the timing of the release of the influential artist’s final studio album, Blackstar — which arrived on his 69th birthday — and the clues that apparently were included in the project about his impending demise. The show features archival footage and photos of Bowie, as well as interviews with a number of people associated with the rock legend.

You can check out a clip from the episode now on the Reelz network’s official YouTube channel. The segment focuses on how a teenage Bowie sustained the injury to his left eye that left him with a permanently dilated pupil, something that added to his famously otherworldly persona.
