Does anyone reading this message have the full unedited video of this show - the original TV broadcast? Even if you don't want to share it would be interesting to know if it exists in the trading community.

Obviously the common circulating video is heavily edited and has "fake" views of the crowd all over the action. My understanding is that there is a 99% complete version circulating amongst collectors but it still cannot be the original broadcast as it has the red "Queen Special" advertisement break logo between some of the songs - on this version the "fake" views of the crowd are massively reduced  and it has a complete "Get Down, Make Love" (albeit with a commercial break in the middle of the song!!!).

Any information will be greatley appreciated.

Great topic, one that has been discussed little.  Myself, I've never seen the uncut video from the live broadcast.  Has anyone else?

I believe the Bandeirantes TV (who recorded and broadcast) has the entire gig in better quality and without edits in the vaults. Sadly they didn't rebroadcast this since the 80's.

Thanks for the replies.

I am a bit suprised that this topic didn't generate much debate, maybe no one has any new information which is fair enough.

In an attempt to put it back to the top of the list here are some screen shots from the 99% complete video which may not be familiar to most people.

The first is from that famous Queen song "Play the Same" the second is from Get Down, Make Love and the third (for SirGH in regard to his sound check thread) is from the sound check.

(The "Play the Same" graphic occurs at the start of Play the Game and is covered by "fake" crowd on the common video).

Thanks for posting the screenshots.  Any chance you could share your DVD?  This would be a very welcome addition to the collections of many.

Sir GH I do not have the video yet I got the information and screenshots from a trader. I am currently working on stereo audio for this concert and when my audio project is complete I have an agreement to make the trade for the video.

I believe a 100% complete video is out there somewhere but I don't know anyone who has it (hence this thread), I know someone with the 99% complete video but as I say I haven't been able to make the trade yet.
