ive come up w/ something! someone should go around Brussels, Rotterdam, Madrid, Munich, Paris, Japan, Budapest, Mexico, and other places with Queen archives in their TV archives and buy them ALL. Then our little agent or G.B. should sell them to Queen Productions LTD. Then we would have more releases without worring about not havin the material.Problem Solved :)

To be honest, it's not such a stupid idea.  TV stations around the world have tons of video and audio material of live shows that were filmed, if only in snippets, for news broadcasts, documentaries, gigs that were shown on tv etc...

Some of the gigs will undoubtedly already be copyright of QP, but some of the overseas TV companies WILL sell footage that is of no use to them and that they own.  Even if the content of the tapes is copyright to QP, the physical tape that it is recorded on is owned by the TV company, and so they can sell it if they wish.

If for example I bought such a tape, as the owner I could then sell it to QP, or anyone else I see fit.  However if the material on the tape is already copyright of QP, I couldn't use it, but QP couldn't insist that I hand it over either as I own the tape.

Even if it were sold to QP, this doesn't in any way of course mean that QP will release it! 

At least if such an exercise were undertaken, some of the material would be passed around collectors and hubs etc.. to those who want to see it

Right, go ahead. We're not stopping you.
Oh, wait. Are you expecting someone else to do all the research, all the trips and spend all the money?

If it shouldn't be done, if it's only some silly and utopic dream, what's the point in posting it on Queen - Serious Discussion... Fucktard?

Don't worry.  Most geniuses aren't recognised in their own lifetime.

OK I'm buying the '81 and the Rock in Rio footages only. Not because I don't have the money to buy everything, but because I'm lazy. (And it's sunday. Afternoon. *Drum roll*. *Cymbal crash*).

Unlike the topic start, this is very interesting. When did it happen, after he came here to collect information about existing videos ?

Wow that's real great news
it would be wonderful to see those 81 shows

But there's one thing I don't understand about those TV channels :
why would they keep all of those shows in archives and never broadcast them ?
(except that using small fragments of these shows In Documentaries)

You can give Greg all the info he needs and he can arrange to get hold of it... but WE'RE never going to see it. So I wouldn't get too bothered about anything - Queen Productions have no interest in releasing anything their fans would be really interested in because they're so greedy they'll only release things that very casual fans will pick up in Asda on a whim.

TV Bandeirantes doesn't even have a copy of the Morumbi concert anymore, I suppose... probably the masters were recycled or deleted to save space - this if they even kept the original footage and not just the crappy edited version seen everywhere. Even if they did, it's QPL property as I've once asked them (around 2000 I think).
They buy these things not to be released in the future, but to prevent people making money.

I certainly think that "Queen" or the record label should at least give us some "Official" live 1970's footage. They could at least give us the Earls Court and Houston show from 1977. The Hammersmith Christmas shows from 75 and 79 as well. This is long overdue and it's about time. If they want to stop the bad bootlegs from flooding the market, then this should be done. By the way, when are we gonna get the "Queen" anthology or ultimate box set? The Beatles Anthology video/DVD set was great and around 12 hours long. Why can't we get something like this for "Queen"? The footage is definitely there.
