It is a rumour. BBC and Queen Productions don't have video of the complete concert in their archives.

From what I've heard, the filming crew we're already packing up during the rock and roll medley, as they thought those were the last songs. Apparently they didn't have their cameras out for SSOR and SWAFIB

It was a contract gig for the cameramen.  They put in their hour of filming for TV, and then they packed up their gear during the last couple songs because their job was done.

Back then most people didn't really care about preserving footage for later generations.  Only in retrospect do we now wish more was preserved..

absolutely...especially at the BBC!!!

also...it's quite clear if you listen to the audio version brian tells the audience that the cameras are off when he says "this is where we start, i think...we're on our own now"
