David Gilmour on BBC4 TV - 3 Programs - Fri 26 Sep '08

Post by Keith Jordan »

BBC4 TV are to broadcast three programs to coincide with the release of David Gilmour's Live in Gdansk DVD/CD release.

They are airing a cut down version of the Live in Gdansk DVD, a behind the scenes documentary and a repeat of the excellent Pink Floyd Story documentary.

Concert Broadcast - 9:10pm

The cut down version of the Live at Gdansk DVD will be broadcast this Friday 26th September 2008 starting at 9:10pm. It lasts for one hour. It is repeated the following day at 1:30am and on the 29th at Midnight. So tune in!

David Gilmour: Gdansk Diary - 10:10pm

BBC4 TV are alsobroadcasting a documentary this Friday 26th September 2008 at 10:10pm (GMT) called David Gilmour: Gdansk Diary. It is repeated the following day at 2:30am.

The 30 minute documentary gives a snapshot of the band and production crew preparing for and then and delivering David Gilmour's unique concert in the Gdansk shipyard in August, 2006.

The film portrays the contextual drama of the urban landscape of the shipyard and shows Gilmour meeting Lech Walesa, the former Polish president and co-founder of Solidarity, as they lay a wreath at the Monument to the Fallen Workers at the shipyards.

It will no doubt be available on the BBC iPlayer at some point for a week after the broadcast.

The Pink Floyd Story Documentary - 10:40pm

And if those two broadcasts are not enough for you, you can catch a repeat of the wonderful documentary The Pink Floyd Story at 10:40pm also on Friday 26th! This also lasts for one hour.

I watched it, but will watch it again on Friday. Quite an emotional performance I think, especially as David can seem a little 'uninvolved' sometimes when performing!

Sad to read that Richard was going to be on with Dave. Jools Holland I'm sure will be saying something about Richard.

I saw Remember A Day on YouTube.

It's sad that this song is FINALLY being done live, and Rick isn't there to sing it... although Dave and Jon put on a powerful performance. It's a sad performance: near the end Dave seems like he's about to cry, and everyone is in black with a black/blue stage lighting setup.

Jon Carin looked really alone and isolated over by the keys with no Rick. All the times I've seen him, he's had either Rick or Harry Waters backing him up... never just himself. He must've been feeling a lot of it.

Watching it now, it is so bloody good. Hang the expense of it, if this is what Live at Gdansk is like then I'll spend next week's rent on it.
