Part 3 @ 3:27. The instrumental intro was left out/clipped due to bad editing/transferring of the video, unfortunately.

It is a defining musical moment; no doubt about it.

All the more reason for a blu-ray, 5.1 surround sound reissue.

I know , it is a travesty beyond human understanding. So tragic. I demand a DVD/Blu-Ray of this gem of a special, fully restored with 5.1 Dolby Surround immediately !!!

Everybody loves Roger, outstanding´╗┐ artist over decades, unique style, and the best darn whistler ever.
