Allegedly Queen Productions have got all the video tapes to this concert but are unwilling to release them,much to our annoyance.
Yet the Montreal gig gets released where the video and sound is shite.=(

At the risk of asking a question that's been asked and answered a dozen times... why would QP be unwilling to release these tapes?

According to Brian May, the video footage of Knebworth wasn't recorded. Scroll down to his August 9 entry.

Brian May's response is interesting.

I have a boot of this on VHS I bought years ago. Dreadful quality as it was filmed off one of the big screens.

Whilst May is correct about footage shot for docos from the audience, the docos also contain footage from the pro shot big screen coverage, which must've been recorded.

Having said that, it wouldn't be the first time that master tapes have gone missing!

That doesn't mean they recorded it. It's like connecting your camera to a TV and pointing it at someone just so they can look at themselves on the TV.

And there weren't camera phones back in 1986. There aren't even camera phones now that can record or 2 hours.

Chances are the master tapes are missing, or Brian sadly isn't lying.

i think he meant recorded the tv using his camera phone. It would make money if they released it, you know queen productions, if they had it, they would release it, the kind of money it would make.

That remark almost made me cry.

Dear girl, I can see from your profile that you are 14, but still...this is 1986 we're talking about! There WERE no mobile phones (unless you count satellite phones), and thus no phones with cameras either!!! Seriously. They only invented those a few years ago. You were certainly around before them, yet you seem unable to picture a world without them. As a historian, that grieves me very much.

I´ve assumed that he wasn´t talk about the audience recording, since in the first post he didn´t specified. I´m confused too!

Take care

Audeince shots aren't pro shots. He knows about the audience recordings, but he means that the footage that was on the big screen is somewhere. I remarked that it wasn't, as the cameras were only there to show the concert to people all the way in the back.
