Format: DVD
I'm a big fan of Peter G. More than that, I'm a nosy fan. I love hearing all kinds of crazy stories of the hilarious antics my favourite artists get up to in their wonderful lives. So this was very tempting. Luckily, I rented it from LoveFilm instead of buying it.

It's not awful but I would disagree with the reviewer who declared it a "must have for any fan." It has some interesting insights but as others have said it's very short and has a lot of filler material mainly made up of Peter Gabriel saying "look at my son, look at my daughters, look at my family. I love them. I LOVE THEM!" to be fair, that's a lovely thing to say but it's a little tedious if you're looking for any profound insight into the mans life.

There's a few "making of" bits around the tour. It's faaaaaaascinating. We look at cameras, the boxes the cameras are kept in, how a camera is put in a box. It's just not good enough to justify the huge price tag.

The extras are a little disappointing too. The Barry Williams Show video is available on the much better Peter Gabriel DVD "Play" which has all his music videos on it. The "making of the Barry Williams Show" is crap as well. It has very little to do with the video at all. In fact, there's a better making of of this video on another one of his DVDs. I can't remember which one it is though. I own so many things HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Anyhow, the film festival footage is uninteresting because none of the songs included are complete and the audience are just embarrassing. It's a real shame but this DVD just doesnt live up to the usual standards you expect from dear old Rael. This review is coming from the kind of fan who weeps over having to write a critical review of anything related to his heroes.

Take More Than A Peek @ Peter 7 April 2014
By Robert Schroeder - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Just for the simple fact that his oldest daughter is the director, and hence the creator, of this seldom-seen peek into the life and times of one of Rocks most interesting characters. I think he won't object to my "character"-ization, its realistically honest and candid. This is one of the more enlightening and truly "behind-(& during)the-scenes" looks at what its really like to be on tour with Peter. If you love him, or even just his music, you will enjoy this DVD.
