Hi all, As you can see in the picture, the cameras were rolling. 
Anyone have some more info on this? Looks to me like early 80's.

Brian May in the red jacket or Fred Mandel? Sessions for The Works perhaps?

Here's another pic from the session.

It's Brian in the red. Based on the hairstyles, I'd date the pics 1981.

Flash recording I gues. Who is the interviewer? This is not Bob Harris. I would say late 1980's

Good observation. We can only wonder who..

The date is October 22, 1980. Flash recording sessions.

http://www.alamy.com/search/ImageResults.aspx?qt=john+henshall+flash+gordon&submitsearch=Search&go=1&a=-1&archive=1&size=0xFF

So then we can conclude that the Flash video was filmed during the sessions? Or was that already figured out?

The man in yellow with the beard is Mike Hodges, the director of the movie and the Flash promo videos, filmed at Advision studios in London.

No it's Joe Cocker.
Don't you know about the Queen+Joe Cocker version of Ming's Theme?

you're going to have to explain why the film maker would stick footage of the band recording the soundtrack onto the dvd?

Thanks for all the info!

Would be a great addition to the DVD release indeed.
And it would make perfect sense to do so as not many bands (especially back then) did full soundtracks for a movie.
