P*U*L*S*E is a Pink Floyd concert video taken from the October 20, 1994 concert at Earls Court, London, in The Division Bell tour, which is currently available on DVD.

There was considerable delay in the release of the DVD edition of P*U*L*S*E, with new features announced with each setback. The cause of the delays was reputed to be the continued modifications and additions in order to produce a high-quality release. The previous planned release date of 22 September 2006 for the two-disc DVD set was changed to 10 July 2006 for the UK and Europe, and 11 July 2006 everywhere else.

  • While the album is a mix of various concerts, this video is of a single performance.
  • The mirror ball used at the end of the song "Comfortably Numb" is one of the largest in the world. 4.9 metres in diameter, it rises to a height of 21.3 metres before opening to a width of 7.3 metres, revealing a 12 kilowatt Phobeus HMI lamp.
  • In the original PPV broadcast, right before the segue into "Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2", the word "ENIGMA" appeared on the backdrop before it was scribbled out by a black permanent marker. It also appeared on the VHS version, although with added strokes making it slightly harder to see. This was one of the confirmations to various Pink Floyd message groups that the Publius Enigma puzzle was legitimate. On the 2006 DVD version, the screen reads "E=MC2" instead of "ENIGMA", seeming to confirm Nick Mason's statements to various book signing crowds that the puzzle was real, but that the person behind it at EMI no longer works for them and that the riddle has been abandoned.
  • In "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse" the lead vocals (originally done by Waters) is sung by David Gilmour.
  • The lead vocals of "Astronomy Domine" (orignally done by Richard Wright and Syd Barrett) is done by Wright and David Gilmour.
  • In "Another Brick In The Wall (Part II)" the lead vocals (originally done by David Gilmour and Roger Waters), is done by Gilmour and Guy Pratt.
  • The lead vocal of "The Great Gig in the Sky", originally done by Clare Torry alone, is done in turn by Sam Brown, Claudia Fontaine and Durga McBroom.
  • In "Comfortably Numb", the part of the Doctor (originally by Waters) is sung by Richard Wright. Jon Carin and Guy Pratt provide backing vocals.
  • For "Run Like Hell", Guy Pratt takes the place in "replying" to David Gilmour that belonged to Roger Waters in the The Wall tour. In the original recording, all the lead vocals of the song were by Waters, but each line alternated between channels, giving the illusion of multiple voices.
  • The DVD release entered the music DVD charts at #1 in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, and the US. Additionally, it has one of the top 3 best first week's DVD sales in the US.
