Pink Floyd: The Story Of Wish You Were Here DVD/Blu-rayLast month, we gave you details of the upcoming "Pink Floyd: The Story Of Wish You Were Here" Blu-ray and DVD. Released by Eagle Vision HD, the title is coming out on both formats on June 25th in the UK, and June 26th in North America. Other areas should follow suit around those dates.

Those of you in the UK (and parts of Europe) will get to see the documentary later this month, courtesy of BBC Four TV. They are showing the full 60 minute documentary which will appear on DVD/Blu-ray. The DVD/Blu-ray will include some additional, extra footage, totalling around 25 minutes.

To recap, The Story Of Wish You Were Here tells about the making of this landmark release through new interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason and archive interviews with the late Richard Wright. Also featured are sleeve designer Storm Thorgerson, guest vocalist Roy Harper, front cover burning man Ronnie Rondell and others involved in the creation of the album. In addition, original recording engineer Brian Humphries revisits the master tapes at Abbey Road Studios to illustrate aspects of the songs construction. The additional bonus material on the DVD and blu-ray releases, and not aired in the TV broadcast version, include further interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason, plus Roger and David performing excerpts from the Wish You Were Here album.

To catch the broadcast, tune in to BBC Four TV (available via Freeview, digital cable and satellite) on Friday, May 25th, at 9pm. There are two additional opportunities to see it, on Saturday, May 26th at 1am, and Sunday, May 27th at 11:40pm. Our thanks to Matthew Samuel for alerting us to this.
