Did you know that the band never played In The Flesh? live? At The Wall concerts it was always played by a substitute band and no other Pink Floyd gigs included the song. Did you know that there have been numerous references to Pink Floyd in The Simpsons? For example, in one of the episodes, Bart can be seen trying to play Echoes on guitar, but is interrupted by Nelson. Did you know that the voice that can be heard in the song Yet Another Movie is Humphrey Bogart’s? The line was taken from Casablanca.

Schroeder, Barbet

Director, producer

Barbet Schroeder is the son of a Swiss diplomatist. He was born on the 26th of August in Tehran, Iran, but he lived and studied in France. He graduated from philosophy at Sorbonne.

Schroeder made several films, but he became known particularly for his decision to ask Pink Floyd to compose the soundtrack to his debut, More (released as an eponymous Pink Floyd album in 1969).

Schroeder was satisfied with the result and he asked Pink Floyd to make also the soundtrack to his film La Vallée/The Valley (1972). The music was later released as a soundtrack album named Obscured By Clouds.

Additionally, Schroeder gained fame for a controversial documentary he made with dictator Idi Amin Dada, president of Uganda from 1971 to 1979, who is responsible for the deaths of at least 300 000, but according to other sources as much as 500 000 victims.
