The music of Pink Floyd will be placed under the musical microscope on the UK's BBC Radio 2 this October with a season of exclusive programmes celebrating their legacy.

Days In The Life is a must listen for any Pink Floyd fan, featuring exclusive interviews with David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Nick Mason, alongside the last radio interview that the late Rick Wright ever gave. Produced by Radio 2's Mark Hagen, it tells their story from pre-Floyd days in the early Sixties right up to Nick and David's live appearance with Roger earlier this summer.

The award-winning documentary series The Record Producers explores the work of legendary record producers and returns to unlock the secrets of the music of Pink Floyd. Produced by record producer Steve Levine and Radio 2 presenter Richard Allinson of Magnum Opus, the mystery of that incredible Pink Floyd sound will be revealed and the creative relationships between the band members explored to discover just why those Pink Floyd recordings sound so good. Original multi-tracks and rare recordings from Meddle and Wish You Were Here, and one of the music world's most influential albums of all time, Dark Side Of The Moon, will be scrutinised and explained by David Gilmour and Nick Mason.

Johnnie Walker will also host a Sounds Of The 70s special with David Gilmour, which will lift the lid on the band's influences during this period and the story of their decade.

All broadcast dates and times are yet to be announced and as soon as we have this information, we will let you know.

UPDATE: The Record Producers is being broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on October 3rd 2011, at 10pm GMT, and is an hour long.
