This was the second of Davids shows in London, i'd pretty much finished a two HD cam edit of this show when another source was seeded. Whilst this 3rd source was incomplete i used it to fill a few gaps in the 2 camera edit. Only approx 20 minutes of footage from the 3rd camera was used.

Video and audio (used from camera 1 ) are excellent quality and video is only slightly let down by the very low lighting that the venue has during performances. The strobes and lights during echoes were a test for the HD cameras and that track has been rendered at 8500kbps, there may still be slight signs of pixelation though. Disc 1 is chapter indexed, has main menu plus track selection menu, Disc 2 is chapter indexed but no menus.

Info from Teletext:
Nach langer Zeit sind sie wieder auf Tournee – Pink Floyd – mehr ein Mythos als nur eine Band.
Der Aufwand für jedes einzelne Konzert ist gigantisch, angeblich der größte, den je eine Band
in der Geschichte der Rock-Musik für Ihre Fans betrieben hat. Was passiert hinter den Kulissen,
bevor ein solches Konzert überhaupt beginnen kann ? Wie bereitet sich
Berlin auf eine solche Massenveranstaltung vor ?
Ein Blick hinter die Kulissen.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After a long period of time they are back on the road – Pink Floyd – more myth than a band.
The effort for each concert is gigantic, allegedly the largest ever a band has done for their fans
in rock history. What happens behind the scenes, before such a concert can even begin ?
How is Berlin preparing for such a mass event ?
A look behind the scene !

Very interesting stuff, and very good pro-shot of Learning To Fly.
