As ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ marks its 40th Anniversary, this new documentary digs deep into archive to tell the story of Queen as it follows their journey from a struggling band gigging at pubs and colleges to the moment they captured the UK’s hearts and minds with what was to become one of - if not the - greatest song of all time.
Queen’s formative years have never been explored in such detail. With a wealth of unseen interviews, recently unearthed rushes of Queen’s first ever video and outtakes from the recording sessions of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ itself, this is the unique story of early Queen told by the band themselves.
This documentary completes the final part of the documentary trilogy alongside ‘Days of Our Lives’ and ‘Freddie Mercury: The Great Pretender .’
It’s simple. It’s real. It’s raw. It’s what happened.
