Does anybody know the dates of each Queen TOTP performance ?

Seven Seas Of Rhye
The first performance, shot in the weather studio was shot (or broadcast ?) according to my information on 21. February 74.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rynnswWUUBY

Than, they made a second performance, their first performance in front of an audience :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZFdOEm-mTc

For some reason, the uploader also claims that this performance was filmed on 21. Feb. 74, but according to my older information it should be from 14. 3. 1974.

And of course since last year we have information about a THIRD performance.
It's the one which starts at 0:07 at this video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLmhXLqrUUo

That one should come from 28. March 1974

Killer Queen
The version, which is now officially available : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QP35v9yjDUw
According to my information it should come from 27. November the same year

However I have absolutely no idea when was the second performance filmed
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jVqmdxL4Yk
The documentary only labelled it as "October 1974". Does anybody know the correct date ?

Now I'm Here
Most of us didn't know they actually performed this one until last year's Stormtroopers exhibition
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cl7up54xQo
Again, the exhibition video claims it's from "January 75" without the correct day.

Is here ANYBODY who can confirm the dates or provide the information about the performances with no date ?

Great, thanks. So does it mean that there is one more version of Killer Queen and one more version of NIH ?

Top Of The Pops 21/11/74 exists in the Private Video Library

http://www.privatevideolibrary.co.uk/

It's unlikely that we'll ever see it, but at least there is a copy :)

I hope you're successful :) From what I heard they're trying to sell all 8000 tapes as one lot.

Most of the dates above are wrong. I have been doing extensive work on the subject of Queen at TOTP, and details will feature in the forthcoming 'Queen Live: A Concert Documentary' book.

Any chance of revealing at least the final date ? I'd really love to buy the tape :-)
