Over 3 months ago I filmed a band recording a track: their rework of the Doctor Who theme.

It was v.difficult to shoot because I only got 2 attempts at each person in the recording booth, quietly tip-toeing around them!

I edited it immediately but then the edit had to sit around for 3 months as the music copyright was cleared by the appropriate people!

Anyway, here it is:

Great stuff! - nicely done. No where near enough footage of the pretty lady of course.......:)

Great to see such a wonderful mix of old and new kit.
However, I fear they're going to have to do quite a lot of gigs, to pay for that lot!!

What a breath of fresh air to see a group of people with instrument and making some good music. Instead of all those boy bands.
Should this group go on tour i hope the cat will have a part. Surprised that the cat was happy in that environment. Excellent video and music choice.

Bloody fantastic!
Just bloody fantastic. THANKSMATE!

Aside from a brilliant sound, and homage to Messrs Floyd and Co by the band, the editing was outstanding.

So many folks think a music vid is easypeasy to do, but thats until they have to make sure the shots of the musos doing their stuff are the RIGHT ones!

I rarely sit through the first 30 seconds of anything, but listened and watched this to the end.

Oh, anyone notice the electric and bilogical cat? ;)

thanks so much Ben!!
i'm glad you appreciated the painstaking lining up of instrument playing - 2 first-time takes of each person and the main guitarist played 2 or 3 overlapping guitar sections too! and of course the all-important cat shots too who, IMO, made the whole piece :)

On an end note. Is the Cat the star of the show??? Please could you tell us the name of the 4 legged roadie and mascot .
Thank You

Excellent video, I was watching this earlier, and my oldest daughter (Who & Floyd fan) asked if Floyd had done the Dr Who theme.

Love it!

Only just got to this one. I'm one of the oldie brigade. You know - western and "There was I waiting a the church" type of stuff most times. (Well, sort of). This is a brilliant show filmed in an amazing way. I absolutely loved it. Oh, and I downloaded!
