DVD/VHS coming in European-only format

Direct Video Distribution UK will release "The Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett Story" on DVD and VHS on March 24.

The 49-minute documentary focuses on the early years of Pink Floyd, and Barrett's departure from the band in the late-'60s. The story is told through interviews with bandmates Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Rick Wright, along with insights from former girlfriends, landlords, flatmates, producers, managers, friends and notable fans.

The title will feature rare early footage of the band performing, including a live show at the UFO Club, and an appearance with former landlord Mick Leonard on "Tomorrows World."

"The Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett Story" will be available in Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS Surround Sound, though the disc and video tape will be playable only on European machines.

Suggested retail price is £17.99 for the DVD and £12.99 for the VHS. For more information, contact suzie@dvdisc.co.uk or nicola@dvdisc.co.uk.
