    Vintage Video - Penguin Cafe Orchestra on BBC

    Don't know if this is prog or not, but I've always liked their sound. https://youtu.be/xRVPEiMO84g

    PCO was indeed an orchestra with a very own sound, which I also liked.

    There's also a video (in 2008 transfered to DVD) with a documentary and the ballet Still Life At The Penguin Cafe:

    Simon Jeffes' son Arthur's Penguin Cafe and offshoot Sundog are well worth seeking out, if you like this sort of thing.

    There's also a South Bank Show (UK television) episode about the PCO.

    I remember being dragged along every year to the annual concert at the secondary school where my wife was a teacher. Highlight one year was two or three senior pupils performing 'Music for a Found Harmonium' on acoustic guitars.
