Hello,
Don't worry i'll tell you what is on it, if you want me to. It also has the Americans criticising Bohemian Rhapsody, as to why it only reached No.7 when it was released in the USA

I live in the USA and I don't get the BBC here, so can someone please, after they watch it, tell me why the show says that the USA criticized BoRhap? That's a new one on me.

Hello,
i can't send you a tape, but i can tell you everything that happened in it. And the Americans Criticised Bo Rhap because they have a different taste of music than us here in the UK, and didn't really understand the mix between Rock and Opera.

I am from the USA and LOVE all of Queen's videos...but alot of dimwits here in the USA were offended by the fact that Queen dressed in drag in the video for IWTBF. We have various geographic areas of the USA that are VERY conservative in their religion, morals, & politics..as well as being bigoted and narrow minded. Some of these area are actually called The Bible Belt in the rural areas of the Southern states of the USA and in the Mid-western states. But there are people like that all thru the USA, as well.

They took Queen dressed in drag to task, supposedly seeing it as overtly suggestive of homosexuality...GOD FORBID..and MTV actually banned all videoplay/broadcast of the video here.

Wayne's World was already the early 90's, Freddie had passed so there was great sentiment, and mostly the film was a HUGE box office hit here, so the film gave TONS of exposure to BoRhap and a whole new young generation of fans who had never seen it, as well as to already established Queen fans. Wayne's World was considered a "cool" film, therby anything in it was "cool".

BoRhap became such a big hit here AFTER Wayne's World that it get this...WON the MTV Award for I think best song from a film, or best video of a song from a film...this from the the same MTV that had banned IWTBF...how's that for irony?

But...I never knew BoRhap was criticised here in the 70's. I was only 14 when it came out here so I didn't pay attention to criticsm then. I thought Americans did like Rock Opera. Hell I bought Tommy when it came out and it was a hit here. So was Jesus Christ Superstar, which I also bought...all that was Rock Opera.

I get a BBC channel, but I'm not sure if it's the one showing the station. I live in the US and if you have satillite, then you at least get one channel....I'm not sure if it's it though.... I'll find out later I guess.

'Ello,

I'm American, yes. I hate being American.. I'm getting out of here and to the UK as soon as I possibly can. To answer your question, most people in America are afraid of something different. As in cross-dressing males. I, personally, never saw Wayne's World, so I couldn't tell you. But I've loved Queen since I was 2 (1993). I was brought up on music from the UK and 70s-80s music.

I have this movie at Dat video.
This film is good because nothing about all this dirty gossips about Freddie, only about creation.But nothing about the meaning of rhapsody. It was very funny that nodbody, even people from Oxford, could explain what Galileo figaro & magnifico means
