Pink Floyd: Marooned

An instrumental track on Pink Floyd's 1994 album, The Division Bell. An excerpt of the music is featured on Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd.

The track was given a Grammy Award in the category of Best Rock Instrumental Performance at the Grammy Awards of 1994.

The piece was written by David Gilmour and Rick Wright. The song has sounds that describe the setting as an island (such as seagulls and waves crashing on the shore).The song was composed while jamming aboard the Astoria in early 1993. The high-pitch guitar sounds on the track came from a Whammy pedal which makes the guitar sound an octave higher, also known as a pitch shifter. Alike to "Is There Anybody Out There?" this song also used the shrill siren-like sound effect of the song "Echoes".

This song has only been played live 3 times. On the two dates in Oslo (one of which is featured on the Pulse DVD), Norway on the 1994 "The Division Bell" tour and at the "Strat Pack" charity concert, for the 50th anniversary of the Fender Stratocaster guitar, where Gilmour played his "#0001" Stratocaster.

This song was featured on Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd but was severely shortened in length to 2:02.

Richard Dawkins with Father George Coyne

This is the full uncut interview with Father George Coyne which was omitted from Richard Dawkins' television program "The Genius of Charles Darwin" for Channel 4 in the UK. RT 1:00:18.

For anyone even remotely interested in the relationship between science and religion, this interview is a must. One of the marvellous things about this interview is that both Fr. Coyne and Dr. Dawkins are showing that the accusations, the bigotry that often marks this type of discussion is not necessary, that it is perfectly possible to have a civil, but frank exchange of views, leading to a good general impression of where both parties stand.

George V. Coyne, S.J. (born January 19, 1933) is a Jesuit priest, astronomer, and former director of the Vatican Observatory and head of the observatorys research group which is based at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona.
