Rare Syd Barrett Footage Unearthed
Film of Syd Barrett performing with Pink Floyd has been discovered in the BBC vaults after more than 40 years.
The footage of the band playing See Emily Play was screened on Top Of The Pops in July 1967 and hasn’t been seen since. But it has come to light in a private collection on a one-inch reel-to-reel tape and has been completely restored.
This will be shown by the British Film Institute on January 9, as part of its annual Missing Believed Wiped event.
