Seeing various documentaries, i found rare bit, that deleted from film.
It's included here.

Also 1994 promo + VH1 clip you get as nice bonus :)

5. Syd's Silent Home Movies - 1966 or early 67

Don't hold your breath too high! It was widely seen & available
snippet of one of Syd's home movies
(broadcasts in two documentaries, at least!).
Where it was shot & location still a mystery.
Probably it was shot in autumn of 66,
or early 67? Need to compare Syd's photos from this dates.
