Don't hold your breath too high! It was widely seen & available snippet of one of Syd's home movies (broadcasts in two documentaries, at least!). Where it was shot & location still a mystery. Probably it was shot in autumn of 66, or early 67? Need to compare Syd's photos from this dates.

The footage of Syd on the beach is taken from the Pros & Cons 1984 EPK video (at the beginning of the documentary, some brief scenes of Syd appear as incrustations; they were zoomed for the montage) and other short extracts that were broadcast by MTV during the 1988 Over The Wall special (when Rick talks about Syd).

Date is still under the question, but it's looks like April 67.
Thanks "Harvested" Again
7. Bouton Rouge (Arnold Layne second promo, 29-04-67)
Some floyd's collectors (including me, haha) previously thinks, that this are probably from "Fan Club" programm, but this is not correct.
Promo was made in England at early morning of 29 april, then move to Holland to mime the same song on "Fan Club". Back to the UK again - 14 hour Technicolour dream appearance in the morning of 30th! What a crazy day !
It was broadcast on French TV - 21-05-67 in show "Bouton Rouge".
First source is non-remastered (by me), 2nd - from Harvested, thanks !
8. Look Of The Week (14-05-67) - Source 1
On 14-05-1967 Pink Floyd performed "Pow.R.Toh.H." and "Astronomy Domine" live on arts programme "The Look Of The Week" broadcast by BBC2 TV at 11.15pm. Barrett and Waters were also interviewed by the classical music critic Professor Hans Keller, who considered their music to "terribly loud" and a "regression to childhood". This appearance was thankfully archieved and various clips have been used in Pink Floyd related retrospectives, most notably in the "Sound of the 60's" BBC2 series in 1991.
(c) Glenn Povey
edited from "Sound of The 60's" PAL master + unknown very good VHS source for the interview.
Pow.R.Toh.h. without watermark. Seems BBC have different source ?
info on vol.3
Wondering & Dreaming Vol.3 (1967-69)
01. Look Of The Week (14-05-1967) - Source 2
This is latest rebroadcast by BBC. They again repeated famous 'Sound Of The 60's" show probably in 2007. Quality is very good.
Source for interview - Harvested DVD. I have 2 sources for the complete interview - Harvested and unknown VHS. I can't choose by quality, because they are both very good, so i included both.
02. Top Of The Pops (6-07-1967) ľ Reconstruction
BBC Lime Grove Studio, Shepherd's Bush, London, England.
Pink Floyd perfomed "See Emily Play" live for the first of three times on the music programme "Top Of The Pops".
It was broadcast on BBC1 TV at 7.30pm
(c) Glenn Povey
After fantastic news, that lost footage is found, i choose to make slide show with original audio from this broadcast.
All pictures are taken only from first perfomance on this show, including screenshots from found video (Mojo article). Audio is rumoured make by fan in 1967
03. Pathe Newsreel (8-07-1967)
On 8 july Pink Floyd were reported in Melody Maker to be making a promotional film of "Scarecrow" for British Pathe News. Filmed in and around Marbury Country Park in Nortwich prior to their show that evening, the clip was then syndicated throughout the ABC cinema circuit in the summer 1967 and featured the band wandering through wheat fields and having a pretend shoot-out, whilst trying not to collapse into fits of laughter.
(c) Glenn Povey
Thanks again to guys from Harvested, who provided best to me this best quality source from VHS.
Other non-floyd footage taken directly from Pathe website.
It was great news somewhere in 2000's, that guys from Pathe found in their archives uncut tape of all outtakes from this newsreel, including also floyd footage. This tape also presented here in full time (and source of floyd part is the same)
16:9 version are taken from "Technicolour Dream" DVD, because to this day it was best ever quality (sadly, that not in 4:3!)
Outtake excerpts from "Which One Is The Pink" doco
04. Beat Club Mentions (1967-69)
Sadly, Pink Floyd cancelled their perfomance in Beat Club in august of 1967.
Here's presented interesting hit parade, nice document from summer of love era.
But then some oddities.
1967-08-01? Reaction In G tape used for the German TV b'cast (Date is some what questionable as the entire band was on holiday during the first 2 weeks of Aug '67 save for 2 recording sessions at EMI.) Reaction In G excerpt was rebroadcast on Beat Club Episode #42 News 1969-04-26 (w/o voiceover) and then 1993-07-02 & 1995-06-05 (w/voiceover) - "There was no show on 1967-08-01, Episode #22 is from 7/22 & #23 from 8/26. Uschi Nerke voiceover version was broadcast on Beat Club Episode #45 News 1969-08-02."
and final mystery: during beat club intro i found bit, and this guy in darkness really looks like pink floyd...
05. American Bandstand (7-11-1967)
On 7-11-1967 Pink Floyd mimed to "Apples & Oranges" for the music programme "American Bandstand" hosted by Dick Clark, in which the band were also interviewed. It was broadcast (in colour) on the KABC network Channel 7 on 18 November at 11.30am
(c) Glenn Povey
Okay, the quality isn't great and it still not only has that annoying timcode that we've all seen before, but an additional slate towards the top of the screen. There is also a small black box in which I needed to remove an ID in order to share this. But I still think its quite watchable and don't think I've ever seen it complete like this, from Dick's intro (holding up the Piper LP) through the end of the band interviews.
PS. Sorry, but actual gen info is unknown. I captured this from a VHS tape, probably 2nd gen.
(c) Ron Toon.
Nothing to say really after this!
Non timecode footage is from "Eight Miles High" Doco & Syd Barrett Story from VH1
06. Central Office Of Information (early dec.67)
On 9 December members of Pink Floyd and their managers were reported in Melody Maker to be viewing a colour film clip of newly recorded "Jugband Blues" at The Central office of Information for inclusion in a cultural exchange magazine programme. Widely available on the collector's market, this film was networked throughout North America and widely reported to be band's next single. The Recording date and location remains unknown.
(c) Glenn Povey
1. First version is probably from NTSC master first gen VHS. This is video as this found - no editing, no audio redub. And mix from this original audio is absolutely unique and unknown. Film was discovered in garden shed in 1999.
2. 2nd version kindly provided to me by Ron Toon, audio now is alright.
3. BBC version are here just for fun :)
4. And final version first broadcasted in 2007 by BBC in "Seven Ages Of Rock' series (part 2). MUCH BETTER quality and picture looks different, promo is incomplete
07. Tomorrow's World (12-12-1967)
On 12.12.1967 group were filmed at former landlord Mike Leonard's house for and edition of the "Tomorrow's World" programme that featured his sound and light experiments. To accompany his work the band were seen playing an untitled instrumental piece composed by Waters & Mason. (The Soundtrack also included the Floyd jamming a Booker T & The MG's style improvisation). The programme was broadcast on BBC1 TV on 17.01.1968 at 6.40 PM and repeated for the very first time as part of BBC Omnibus special in 1994
(c) Glenn Povey
Mike Leonard have this footage in his private collection for many years and thankfully (BBC has wiped this) it was appeared in collector's circles.
Quality is absolutely stunning, only footage have timecode.
Non timecode version was broadcast on Jools Holland show and Pink Floyd Omninus doco in 1994.
08. Christmas On Earth Continued (22-12-1967)
Pink Floyd appeared on last psychedelic major event "Christmas On Earth Continued" on 22 December. It was last Syd Barrett perfomance with the Floyd as 4 piece band. Summer is Love is all over forever.

Floyd footage here listing only 3 seconds, unfortunately. Other groups in this clip: Traffic, Soft Machine, Tomorrow, Hendrix, Unknown black guys.
09. Home Movies (Filmed between 1966 & 1969)
Location and exact dates of this footage is still unknown. This footage appeared first in Knebworth 1990 promo film about Pink Floyd. Previous source have very bad quality, i found new source from VHS and it was looks much better.
This footage contains 1966, 1967 (?) and 1969 home movies edited in one clip.
Rumours spreading that this is more and in best quality.. but where ?
