So, is there going to be a Champions of the World DVD? Or even a Greatest Video Hits III? Or are we just going to have to settle for them on VHS? I think it's pretty lame that they leave these titles out...

I think it's pretty lame that GHIII even made it into VHS, although I have a soft spot for Champions of the World since it was the first Queen documentary I ever saw.

They need to do a lot of additional work before re-releasing that documentary - I'm talking about long process of the correcting dates in the titles...

Correcting the dates in the titles? What do you mean?

I think he's referring to the fact that many dates of concerts are wrong in the documentary... yes?

Yes, he is.

Not only in concerts, in interviews also. I love those snippets from Harris' interviews with Freddie from "1973", where some gold and platinum disks are on the wall behind of Fred... Probably for "I can hear music"...

Well, whatever the case may be - Champions of the World is the best documentary I've seen, and I wish I could own it on DVD. At least, for the sake of being able to nix all my VHS's for DVD's...the two I mentioned are the only VHS's I have left to replace, LOL.

Unless, of course, someone knows of a documentary that's much better than Champions...

The Magic Years of course. Champions on 60-70% based on Magic Years.

"Killer Queen" is a great one, too.

This one seems to be a bit difficult to find! I've heard it praised before, however, have been unable to locate a copy.

Champions Of The World should have been released before Made In Heaven The Films which was the worst dvd yet no extras or nothing
