Lost footage of a 1969 German TV special has recently emerged, showing a pre-famous Phil Collins performing with his band at the time Flaming Youth.

The band performed a part of their only album, Ark 2, which was influenced by the media's attention to the moon landing and all about the evacuation from a dying earth. It recieved some critical praise, but was not commercially sucessful.

The band included singer John Walker from the Walker Brothers, bassist "Flash" Gordon Smith, keyboardist Brian Chatton, and guitarist Ronnie Caryl. The footage was shot a year before Collins joined Genesis.
