Have done a search so sorry if I missed something but can anyone give me some info on The Works Promo:

http://www.magicqueen.pl/txttrasy/vcd/works.html

I have a copy of it but in terms of picture quality the film is almost unwatchable. Is it official and can it be bought/acquired somewhere in better quality?
Thanks in advance.

hmm...i checked the description. I don't know the slightest bit of German, but it seems like it may have been a television program, maybe. Don't quote me on it.

I doubt it's official...though it may feature official content (music videos, interviews, etc.)

German would've done you little good, seeing how the page is in Polish.

Thanks for the info. It looks like your copy is in better condition than mine rocktheflash. Is your version directly from the Austrian TV show? If not, may I ask where you found it? Thanks.

This is very nice footage of Queen. Their manager was Paul Prenter, who died of AIDS, at his last year before Jim Beach took over in 1985.

There is a photoshoot with the band and indeed some footage from vienna 1982. Also some building of the stage and other footage.
