40 years after Britain’s foremost ‘underground’ band released their debut album, Piper At The Gates of Dawn, Pink Floyd remains one of the biggest brand names and best loved bands in the world.
They pioneered everything from underground rock to the stadium extravaganza; a band that has survived tragedy, shunned celebrity and wrestled publicly with both its success and its audience.
This film features extended archive, some of it rarely or never seen, alongside original interviews with four members of Pink Floyd – David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Richard Wright and Nick Mason – and traces the journey of a band and the different stages of its evolution.
There have been five men in Pink Floyd, and three of them have led the band in different decades. That’s why the question still remains: which one’s Pink?
