Back in February 2002, BBC Radio 2 broadcast a fascinating, four-part look at the story of Pink Floyd, called "Wish You'd Been Here". It featured exclusive interviews with David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Richard Wright, as well as the people who knew and worked with them.

The good news is that the BBC are airing all four parts again shortly, and we have details of when to tune in...

BBC 6 Music are the ones airing it this time around, and you can hear each part at the following times:

Part 1 - Monday, April 30th at 9:30pm BST (GMT +1 hour)
Part 2 - Tuesday, May 1st at 9:30pm BST
Part 3 - Wednesday, May 2nd at 9:30pm BST
Part 4 - Thursday, May 3rd at 9:30pm BST.

There are three ways to listen to BBC 6 Music - via www.bbc.co.uk/6music (click the yellow Listen Live button), where you can also listen to repeats of the BBC radio shows up to seven days after broadcast; via DAB digital radio; or via digital satellite television (Sky), digital cable (Virgin Media), and Freeview.

For those wondering what each part covers, here's the official rundown from the BBC website:

Originally broadcast February 2002
Presented by Bob Harris

Part 1: The Syd Barrett Era
Part 2: Journey to the Dark Side
Part 3: Dark Side to WYWH
Part 4: The Wall and Beyond
The above four parts were, until the end of April, hosted at the BBC website to listen to at any time, on demand. Sadly they have been removed now.
