AWESOME.

Thank you!!!

I wonder if they'll show it 'uncut' (with profanity, etc.) here...

They just might have to take out the bicycle riders from part 1?

Does that channel have adverts?

The documentry will probably be edited down to fit in the timeslot, or badly broken up because it isn't made to be broadcast in "acts".

Look for it under the BIO channel.  All cable and satellite providers have it on their line up.

OK, is Biography even showing the same documentary, or is this 'description' just 100% wrong and referring to something older that aired years earlier?

On my Comcast system here in the USA, here is the description for the Queen: The Days of Our Lives documentary they're going to start airing next week:

"Axl Rose hosts retrospective on the rock group's 20-year career includes interviews with band members, and comments from Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Elton John and Phil Collins."

HUH???

That sounds like the "Is This The Real Life" documentary from 1991.  Let's hope they got their notes wrong.  I'm sure Brian knows which documentary the biography channel is getting.

My Comcast description says the same thing, malicedoom.  Comcast gets the description wrong all the time.  It will be the same Days of Our Lives documentary that was aired on the BBC in the UK a few weeks ago.  Just read the description on the link.

Gotcha.  Thanks.

Think they'll bleep out the profanity?  And blur or cut the nude bicycle race?  I'm guessing they will. 

Thank God for the BBC download.  :)

Apparently its going to be a special edit for the American market, different to the BBC one. I wonder if it will feature more US '77 stuff?

Some of it will be the same, some will change.  Queen productions are notorious for doing this.  

We'll have to wait till Monday to compare the differences.

It will probably be cut up and reedited to allow for adverts, creating a structure with "acts" and things.

Well, it'll be cool to have a different version, but I don't see how they can top what the BBC aired.

I was annoyed to discover this will not run on the Canadian feed of this very same channel, at least not then.  Just what is the problem?  We're *attatched*, goddamit!  :p

I seriously admire people who STILL watch TV in the time of high-speed internet :-)

Were it not for the DVR (and OnDemand), I rarely would.

This aired last night as a single, 2 hr episode - they updated the title screen as well (no 'Part 1' or 'Part 2' under the title, etc.)

Also, profanity was bleeped and nudity was blurred.

I'll stick with my download/torrent from the BBC broadcast, thank you very much.  :)

It was heavily edited. They removed around 45 minutes from the BBC version for commercial purposes. I hope Queen Productions releases a bluray of the documetnary. That'd be sweet. If not, I have the BBC version on my computer.
