Have you guys heard about this new documentary? Someone followed Freddie around for 20 years! I think I might go to this screening if I can (it's like 2 hours from my house), but i cant find it on DVD: http://www.projecttwenty1.com/Default.aspx?tabid=86&CategoryID=1&List=1&Level=1&ProductID=24

This is not a new documentary. It was released on vhs in 1995. And no, someone didnt just follow Freddie around for 20 years. The Documentary makers, DoRo have worked with Queen for that length of time from the early 80's onwards.

It's called "Champions of the World"
and it's from 1995, around the release of Made in Heaven.

It's really good, but I haven't watched it in years, because I only got it on VHS.

I hope it will be released!

It was a farely good documentary but from what I understand there is a certain amount of misinformation in it.

It is a really decent documentary! I have it on VHS, and it's really worth buying on tape if you can. I recommend Amazon.com, but eBay should work fine as well. I got mine for about $6 including shipping.


I have to return some videotapes.
