David Bowie fans across the country will have a chance to look around the sell-out exhibition at the V&A Museum without paying the cost of a ticket or even a fare to London.
On 13 August, curators and "special guests" will lead a virtual tour of the exhibition that will be beamed into more than 200 cinemas. It will be directed by Hamish Hamilton, who received a Bafta for his work on the Olympic and Paralympic ceremony coverage.
Some 200,000 people have visited the London museum to see around 300 items and photos from the Bowie archive. The exhibition draws to a close in August before moving on to Toronto in Canada and Sao Paolo in Brazil.
V&A director Martin Roth said: "Visitors have gone to great lengths for a chance to see our exhibition so we wanted to give everyone across the country one last opportunity to experience it for themselves."
After years out of the spotlight, David Bowie has released his first new single for a decade. The music legend celebrated his 66th birthday by surprising fans and the music industry with his new song - a ballad called 'Where are we Now'. He hasn't performed in public since 2006.

David Bowie has released his first album and single today in over a decade. The release coincides with a major Bowie exhibition which is due to be staged at London's V&A in March. A spokesperson for the iconic artist said:
Throwing shadows and avoiding the industry treadmill is very David Bowie despite his extraordinary track record that includes album sales in excess of 130 million not to mention his massive contributions in the area of art, fashion, style, sexual exploration and social commentary. It goes without saying that he has sold out stadiums and broken ticket records throughout the world during this most influential of careers
Heddon Street in central London will get a new plaque today, marking forty years since Ziggy Stardust was born. David Bowie was photographed in the street for the Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust album cover in 1972, which catapulted him to international fame.
The plaque will be one of only a couple given to fictional characters, such as one for the great detective Sherlock Holmes at 221b Baker Street. Gary Kemp will unveil the plaque in a ceremony later today.
