"Golden Years" was a 1998 television comedy one-off sitcom episode starring the The Office and Extras star Ricky Gervais. Gervais plays Clive Meadows, the main character who has a David Bowie obsession. Clive Meadows is the 32 (or 37, he is somewhat unclear) year old co-owner of 'Video Zone', a video rental company based in Reading. The show follows Clive as he prepares for his appearance on the ITV talent show Stars In Their Eyes. The documentary style of the show and in particular the behaviour of Clive present like prototypes for The Office and its lead character David Brent.
