Lost Floyd Film With Barrett Surfaces

Previously unseen footage of the late SYD BARRETT in his PINK FLOYD days has surfaced, just one week after he died from complications relating to diabetes. The 1967 film is soundtracked by the Pink Floyd song THE SCARECROW and sees Barrett behind a scarecrow. Elsewhere, he and bandmates ROGER WATERS, RICK WRIGHT and NICK MASON walk through cornfields before Waters and Mason stage a pretend shoot-out. The lost footage was found in the vaults of British TV news broadcaster ITN. It was aired once in 1967, but the outtakes have never been screened before. An insider says, "This is a real find and it's one of the few times Syd was filmed in colour during his time in Pink Floyd. The outtake footage makes it all the more valuable. "It's a real coincidence this has just been found, with Syd having just passed away." The film will be screened in London later this year (06), following a digital restoration.
