This may actually be something new as two Zeppelin programs are scheduled to air this evening. The first one airing at 9 pm is most likely the one we have all seen before while the one coming on at 10 pm does appear to be something new.

A profile of the rock band that got its name when drummer Keith Moon predicted how the band would go over with audiences after hearing their demo tapes. Zeppelin's first album reached number 10 on the charts in 1969, and their popularity continued to grow with each subsequent album. But they were among the most hedonistic of all rock bands, and their indulgences led to a series of tragedies that ultimately broke up the band.

Well, I'll give them both a look...but reading the blurb for the new bio, I don't know how DEFINITIVE it could be if it's only one hour. Actually, that's misleading...with all the commercial breaks the Bio channel has, the real length of the doc will be more like 40 minutes.

Well, I just checked the schedule, and out here in L.A., on the Direct TV satellite system, the Bio channel is 266.

The schedule is as follows(all times PST):

5:00PM Pink Floyd biography

6:00PM Led Zeppelin biography from 2004

7:00PM Dazed and Confused: Led Zeppelin bio from 2011

8:00PM repeat of Dazed and Confused

I set the tivo up to record so I can fast forward thru the commercials later when I watch them.

It's 666 here in the Cackalack. Should I be a feared to watch? They'll probably just show reverse footage anyway...

Thanks for the heads up. I do plan on recording it but I am a bit skeptical as to the "rare footage". What else could there be? They were such a private and well guarded band. I hope I am wrong though...

I checked this site just intime to record it, starts in 15 minutes here in Chicago. Crossing fingers it has some stuff I haven't seen/heard thousands of times already. Hopefully a decent summary of how popular they are still in 2011 and revered.

The music is fake and not by Zeppelin, likely backing tracks. The fan footage is mostly June 11, 1977. The b/w shots are from Sydney 1972.

With little bits of Knebworth Danmarks Radio and RAH every once and a while

The ending was extremely rushed, it was a decent informational documentary ( knew 98 percent of the info) for new fans up until 44 minutes in where it basically went from led zeppelin 3 to Bonzo's death in 6 minutes.
