Pink Floyd: The Story Of Wish You Were Here DVD/Blu-rayAt the start of the 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. Much anticipated, we've had a lot of emails from people in various places wondering when they'll be able to get their hands on it.

With a quoted runtime of 85 minutes, this programme tells the story of 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 DVD and blu-ray releases contain additional bonus material not featured in the TV broadcast version, including further interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason, plus Roger and David performing excerpts from the Wish You Were Here album.
