Yesterday (Friday) there was a Freddie Mercury documentary on NrK 1.

It was a lot of footage I had never seen before. Especially a lot from Garden Lodge, and much about Freddie's boyfriends and the way he liked to party.

At the end, of course, they showed his fight against AIDS.

But I don't know the name of the documentary, does any one know the name?

-ER DET NOEN SOM VET HVA DEN HETER???

I didn't saw the intro, I accidentally "switched" it on, and I was of course very happy. I don't know if my friends was equally happy about it, but we watched it and it was great!

I cannot read Norwegian, but on the website of NrK1 I have found the information:

NRK1 fredag 30. mai kl 00.55 Freddie Mercury - et magisk liv
Nært møte med venner og familie

Som musiker og entertainer solgte Freddie Mercury 80 millioner album verden over med bandet Queen. Men frontfiguren vernet om privatlivet og ble ofte gjenstand for sladder og rykter. Gjennom familie, venner, samarbeidspartnere og kjente fans blir vi i kveld bedre kjent med en av 70- og 80-tallets mest toneangivende artister.

Vi møter blant andre moren Jer Bulsara og søsteren Kashmira Cooke. Vi treffer også kjæresten Jim Hutton, den personlige assistenten Peter Freestone, de nære vennene David Evans og Peter Straker, musikerkollegene Roger Taylor og Montserrat Caballe og kjente fans som Robbie Williams, McFly og Mike Myers.

Dokumentaren byr ellers på tidligere ukjente intervjuer med Freddie Mercury selv. Den tar oss også med til India, der Freddie Mercury vokste opp. Vi følger skolekameraten Zahid Abrar til stjernens gamle skole og til barndommens favorittsteder.

Freddie Mercury døde av aids i 1991.
