The Pink Floyd will be on BBC 4 TV this coming Friday 16th September 2011 in a few programs starting at 9:30pm after Last Night at the Proms.
The schedule read like this:
9:30pm – The Pink Floyd Story – Which One’s Pink
10:30pm – “A Pink Floyd Miscellany 1967-2005“
11:30pm – Pink Floyd Live in Pompeii
I believe A Pink Floyd Miscellany is a new program and the BBC website says that the program features a compilation of rarely screened Pink Floyd videos and performances, beginning with the Arnold Layne promo from 1967 and culminating with the reunited band’s performance at Live 8 in 2005.
Also including a newly-restored Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2) and performances of Grantchester Meadows, Cymbeline and others.
The program comes shortly before the Why Pink Floyd release schedule commences which will see the entire Pink Floyd back catalogue re-released in various packages and degrees of content. You can read all about the conetents of the Why Pink Floyd release schedule.
