I've taken some pics from some early Queen footage featured on a Queen TV programme and I just don't know whether they are from the videos of the songs or from a TV show Queen performed in.
These two pics are Queen performing Keep Yourself Alive:

And the one from this page is Freddie singing Liar:

In case they're from TV shows, does anybody know which ones?

I remember them as those "Live"-rip-offs from the horrible "Rare Live" - presented by Doro as "rehearsal" footage, those clips are nothing more than mimed promo-clips, the first (bright) apparently from a TV-Studio, the second (darker) perhaps from their rehearsal site at the time, but definitely not live as Doro wanted us to believe.
But I too don't know for what purpose exactly they were recorded, maybe Top of the Pops ?

Promo videos, could be found as Bonus Tracks on Greatest Flix I and Box Of Flix. 'Keep Yourself Alive' exists in two versions (one of them can be seen on the Magic Years and another one on Rare Live or GF1 and BOF) - it weren't TV shows.
