New appointment on Rai 5 with great music. The docu-film “David Gilmour: Wider Horizons” will be broadcast on Wednesday 10 January.
the film is the portrait of one of the greatest guitarists and singers of all time, David Gilmour, who joined Pink Floyd with the implosion of Syd Barrett.
The crew directed by Alan Yentob – creative director of the BBC – captured the key moments of David Gilmour’s personal and professional life and the crossroads that shaped him as a man and musician.
The documentary reveals aspects and curiosities that no one suspected the existence of.
In the video, Gilmour himself reveals that he sang on a couple of songs in the 1967 film “Two Weeks in September” with Brigitte Bardot. It was known that David had a “crush” on the actress, as he himself stated in an interview with “Panorama” in 2008: “all I did was wink at her several times while I was performing at a party in Paris.
I was playing the guitar and couldn’t move. She smiled at me and she left with a German gentleman not at all sexy, but much more elegant than me”. But no one was aware that Gilmour had taken part in the soundtrack of one of his films.
“David Gilmour: Wider Horizons”, broadcast on Wednesday 10 January at 11.10pm on Rai 5.
