Those TATDOOL backstage segments were very hard to watch indeed.

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

I found it very hard to watch those final recordings. You can see why the final video was released in B/W. Poor Fred must have been so uncomfortable :(

Did have to smile at the penguin bit though. ' Roger what did you do???' Lol 

You're greatly missed Freddie. R.I.P

Today was the first time I realised Fred had a bloodshot eye during the shoot, something the B/W hid well. I don't know about hard to watch but it was certainly very emotional.

Yep, that part of filming TATDOOL was very hard to watch.  Freddie looked so thin and exhausted.  It makes cry.

I am a 23 year old man and I burst out crying when I saw the 'These are the days of our lives' outtakes. It was so emotional, I was moved  beyond words. It was an emotional 2nd half documentary. What a fucking amazing man Freddie was, I am incredibly moved by this documentary tonight.

I am 30, it's 20 years on and I'm still crying.  After all that time, the wounds are still raw.  Very, very hard to watch.  Freddie has left a huge, huge hole in my heart.

Being from Argentina is quite disgusting to see what the documentary shows about Queen´s visit in 81..

Every concert was amazing.. let alone the revolution they caused.

And of course their 2008 comeback was a wild experience as well, best Q+PR gig ever.

Nice BBC documentary, any plans for a release??


Queen rocks!

According to Brian, Roger and Mack, it was John who came up with the bassline of Under Pressure, not David Bowie. He even forgot it after they went for a pizza, haha. Gotta love the Deakster.

I know what you mean guys, I just watched the youtube version. I am too an 30 years old heterosexual and "emotionally stable " man and I ended with tears in my eyes for the last minutes, the TATDOOL video shoot was extremely emotional.

Overall I have a feeling that this documentary was made for US, for the collectors, the people who keep on bitchin' about Queen not releasing something new. To be honest, if I didn't know Queen good enough already, I probably wouldn't understand what this documentary was about :-)

But I am SOOOO glad they did something like this, it's great to watch all the new things and I hope we get a DVD soon

Come on, they had only 2 hours for showing us something of their 40 years of videos .
I for example wanted to see more of Japan 75 or the complete SSOR TOTP performances in color, but we can't have everything.
And still, it's MUCH better than the DoRo stuff

Some people argued that maybe they shouldn't have included those TATTOOL bits. I think they did a good job with that. It really shows how strong Freddie was and that he wanted to make music no matter what. He even was a perfectionist during that shooting, can you imagine! It did bring a tear to my eye. Very touching overall.

'Was uncomfortable. But I was proud of Brian and Roger's comments, their protection of Freddie, Roger's comments towards The Sun, 'fucking wankers'.

Having seen it, I can only say a couple of things.

1).  Anyone complaining about it must've watched a different documentary.  Or is possibly missing a heart.

2).  What an incredible band.  What an incredible bunch of guys.
