Isn't this a HD transfer already?
What newly discovered footage do you mean? Is there footage of 'Nobody Home' that is bright?
Is this 'Behind The Wall' documentary an old documentary, using inferior footage?
Maybe there's no DVD, for the same reason as why there's still no 5.1 mix. However, I think that a Waters DVD of the new The Wall Tour will blow away any footage of earlier shows. I doubt that anyone of Pink Floyd will look back with fondness of the original The Wall. Pink Floyd was in a crisis. The footage was already of a (reportedly) disappointing quality in the early 1980s. Which is why it didn't go to the cinema. Waters's first The Wall was still made during the crisis, which had become worse. (Late 1980s, early 1990s.) Waters hid himself with sunglasses. The current The Wall shows Waters having fun and also Gilmour and Mason are having fun. Why would they bother the market with a dated show made during a band crisis? Isn't it better to show just a few excerpts that (misguidingly) give the impression that it was almost as spectacular as it would have been today?
Freaks like me want to have everything. So, this is written from what I see as the point-of-view of Pink Floyd.
Maybe, hopefully, they will be easier on the Barrett years. Because Barrett is dead and because that was a more experimental time anyway.
