Rare Pink Floyd Footage Surfaces

An unidentified Rock star is being credited with giving the British Film Institute footage of a 1967 Pink Floyd performance done for the BBC One show Top of the Pops.  The Institute arranged for the restoration of the two performances of See Emily Play recorded on July 6 and 27 1967.  The discovery is particularly noteworthy because the recordings were done while Syd Barrett was still in the band. Relatively few recordings of the popular series are in the archive.  Many of the live shows were not even recorded, and lots of the ones that were got discarded over the decades to clear space.  The BBC plans to air the Floyd segment as part of a special in January.
