A global television broadcast of the event in which former Pink Floyd leader singer and composer Roger Waters led an all-star cast in a mammoth benefit performance of his acclaimed concept album/concert, The Wall, in support of The War Memorial Fund for Disaster Relief. Set in Berlin, Germany less than a year after the destruction of the hated Berlin Wall, Waters was accompanied by disparate talents such as Cyndi Lauper, James Galway, Joni Mitchell and Albert Finney in the classic dark musical tale of a rock star's descent into madness and back. The performance was subsequently released as a top-selling video.Written by

During the live TV transmission the second and third songs, "The Thin Ice" and "Another Brick in the Wall part I", were disrupted when a circuit breaker tripped. It was reset, but immediately tripped again. As part of the precautions against such events marring the video release of the concert not only was the previous day's full dress rehearsal filmed but the stage was also cleared (and as need be rebuilt) once the concert was over to allow further performances of any songs that had suffered from audio or video problems be re shot. Much of the footage of "The Thin Ice" and "Another Brick in the Wall part I", and some from "The Happiest Days Of Our Lives" used on the Video, Laserdisc and DVD releases is from these encore performances.

absolutely fabulous! Watched the tape till it wore out. now the DVD is absolutely wonderful. the graphics and sound amazing. If you are a true fan, this is a must have. Crystal clear video, Dolby surround fills the room, like being there. The historical info is well done and the bonus material informative.
