AUGUST 1982 cinemas across the country were preparing to showcase Pink Floyds new film - The Wall, filmed locally, with the help of the award-winning Bradford Boys’ Brigade Battalion Band.

The idea of using a Boys’ Brigade band came from the film’s director Alan Parker, a former BB lad in Islington.

Locomotives from Keighley-Worth Valley Railway were also featured in the movie alongside hundreds of extras drafted in from throughout Yorkshire to help add that 1940s flavour.

The partially-animated film starring Bob Geldof, told the story of Pink, a man disturbed by living in a stressful society.
