Do we KNOW (= NOT think) how much material was filmed during Queen's first visit to Japan ?

I have been analysing the silent footage shot at the Stormtroopers exhibition and I noticed there various bits of Lap Of The Gods, Son And Daughter, Keep Yourself Alive and an unknown piano song.

So using all currently available material we can be sure that at least this was filmed (chronologically ordered)

Arrival at the airport
The press conference
Picnic and photoshoot session
Messages to the fans

Now I'm Here
unknown piano song (probably White Queen or In The Lap Of The Gods)
In The Lap Of The Gods
Killer Queen
Son And Daughter
Speech before Keep Yourself Alive
Keep Yourself Alive
unknown song 2 (maybe KYA or Liar)
In The Lap Of The Gods revisited


In other words ... we KNOW they filmed songs from the beginning of their last Japanese concert, from the middle, and from the end. Can we assume the COMPLETE concert was filmed ? Does anybody know if it was confirmed officially ?

The 4:12 video which I uploaded actually had a 2nd part which somehow became corrupt when trying to upload to YouTube. From what I can remember the exhibition video cut to press conference footage etc, then there was another few mins of silent concert footage all in really nice quality.

Some video footage of Great King Rat is all that I need.
