to this day it was best quality copy in circulation.

Non-voiceover version actually comes from Granada TV archives,

without voiceover.

London Underground

2. Dope movie (Jan. or Feb. 67)

Filmed by underground filmmakers Diane and Sheldon Rochlin
for their film "Dope".

Before summer of 2009, actually no one floyd collector
knows about this footage.
It was big surprise for all fans.

Short footage of UFO Club also included
(& feat. 1 second of further floyd footage!)

Date: still unknown. And music ! Some UFO regulars says:
it was Soft Machine!
3. Die Jungen Nachtwandler (24.02.1967)

24-02-67 - Late show with Brothers Grimm and film shows.
Pink Floyd's perfomance of "IO" and general scenes of UFO Club

The Who. It was broadcast on the Bayerischer Rundfunk TV
network on 3 July 1967 at 11.00pm

Master copy, thankfully, comes to me very recently.
It was best ever copy of this footage.

Best VHS source included here for historical interest only.

See The Who doco "Amazing Journey" i found footage
in UFO club, that NOT used in original documentary.
This is very brief excerpts of John "Hoppy" Hopkins and
John "Junior" Wood from Tomorrow band.

Unknown group in focus - actually Soft Machine

4. Arnold Layne (Promo video, late feb. 67)

A promotional film for their first single.
Filmed at Wittering Beach on the south coast
of England by Derek Nice,
this promo premiered at the UFO club on 10 March, 1967.

Source of master copy (?) is unknown, but 16:9 version are taken
from "A Tecnnicolour Dream" DVD.

Filmed - late february 67 or very early march.

5. Beach Home Movies (Spring of 67)

Interesting footage of Syd and The Pink Floyd
running along a beach and also viewing through a view-finder.
They all look happy, and the footage is merged with scenes of water.
1min. 56 sec

The footage of Syd on the beach is taken
from the Pros & Cons 1984 EPK video
(at the beginning of the documentary,
some brief scenes of Syd appear as incrustations;
they were zoomed for the montage)
and other short extracts that were broadcast by MTV
during the 1988 Over The Wall special (when Rick talks about Syd).

Filmed in spring of 67

6. Abbey Road Home Movies (April 67)



8mm home movies filmed outside of Abbey Road Studios.
Filmed probably by Nick Mason.

Date is still under the question, but it's looks like April 67.

Thanks "Harvested" Again

7. Bouton Rouge (Arnold Layne second promo, 29-04-67)

Some floyd's collectors (including me, haha)
previously thinks, that this are probably from
"Fan Club" programm, but this is not correct.

Promo was made in England at early morning of 29 april,
then move to Holland to mime the same song on "Fan Club".
Back to the UK again - 14 hour Technicolour dream appearance
in the morning of 30th!
What a crazy day !

It was broadcast on French TV - 21-05-67 in show "Bouton Rouge".

First source is non-remastered (by me),
2nd - from Harvested, thanks !

8. Look Of The Week (14-05-67) - Source 1

On 14-05-1967 Pink Floyd performed "Pow.R.Toh.H." and
"Astronomy Domine" live on arts programme "The Look Of The Week"
broadcast by BBC2 TV at 11.15pm. Barrett and Waters were also interviewed
by the classical music critic Professor Hans Keller, who considered their music
to "terribly loud" and a "regression to childhood". This appearance was
thankfully archieved and various clips have been used in Pink Floyd related
retrospectives, most notably in the "Sound of the 60's" BBC2 series in 1991.
