Highlights: 
Rare photos
Hyde Park Footage
Houston Footage
Short earls court footage
NOTW US Tour 1977 Footage (backstage and on stage) 
rare 70's interviews
video of recording we are the champions
touching info
videos had slightly different angles
Sao Paulo 1981 Footage

Setbacks:
Same promo and music videos shown when talking about songs
Could have put more earls court footage
No hammy 1979 footage except for 2 seconds of sheer heart attack
Nothing on the jazz/live killers tour and Freddie's vocal problems as it was a huge part of their career 
Showed some footage from These Are the Days of our Lives video shoot and they really shouldn't have out of respect for Freddie. 

This is probably the best thing they've put out all year though


It's late, but it's time to set me free

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

True, they more or less skipped the Jazz/Live Killers tour.

Maybe they didn't show any Hammersmith '79 because they're going to release it next year.
(wishful thinking!)
The Hyde park footage was very good quality and the sound sounded (is that right?) like it had been remastered/mixed.
(maybe that'll get released next year)....more wishful thinking.
Killer Queen footage was very good, maybe they're.....

so Paul Prenter and jJohn Deacon are to blame for the crappy dance disco tracks in the 80's.  I knew it! no wonder Deacy doesnt want to work with bri and rog he never really was a rocker.

====================

They never said john was to blame, they Implied it was mostly Freddie and Paul, Roger obviously hated the album.

Man it's 20 years since freddie died and I still cry when I watch documentaries of his last days. I though part 2 was brilliant, fairly honest about the albums during the 80s. Seemed to run out of time to go into the Miracle and Innuendo in any detail, but I suppose there were other things to discuss at that stage of their career. Now watching Hammersmith 75, with so many appearances on TV don't think it will ever be released on DVD, shame as it'd be good to get the full show.
