This is a quasi-documentary from 1979. Here's Trancer's description of the show that he lists on his ''For Sale'' page:

QUEEN THE CHAMPIONS DOCUMENTARY (VIDEO VG+/ AUDIO VG+) 48 MIN.
TV SPECIAL AIRED ON 21/12/1979

We Will Rock You (on Superman's shoulders) *, Now I'm Here*, Sweet Lady (Hyde Park), Instrumental Inferno*, Let me Entertain You*, Get Down,Make Love*, Queen Backstage '77, FM Interview '77, Crazy Little Thing Called Love w/ Live Overdubs, FM w/ Royal Ballet '79 (Bohemian Rhapsody), Bicycle Race Rehearsal, Fat Bottomed Girls*, Fat Bottomed Girls w/ live overdubs, Sheer Heart Attack*, Bohemian Rhapsody*, Tie Your Mother Down*, Queen Interview '78, Love Of My Life, We Are The Champions (Rugby version), RT interview, We Are The Champions*, God Save The Queen*, Bicycle Race. *= Live at Paris Pavillion, 27/2/79


As you can see from Trancer's description, this is largely a live special with a few band interviews mixed in for good pleasure. If I had to guess, I'd say this was actually commissioned by the band and shown in the US as a promotional special. Highlights include candid backstage moments, John in briefs, Freddie in a Jimmy Carter mask, narration by your dad, elephants, elephants, and more elephants.

I received this from a Texas lady a few years back. Haven't seen her around Queen-dom in forever, so a belated thanks to her.

This is a SVCD version. If you want it in DVD, either convert and burn yourself or pay Trancer a bloated price to do it for you. Otherwise, here is it for free.

You will need a bittorrent client to download the music. For additional information, view the Bittorrent FAQ.

Please leave your window open when you have finished downloading so that other Queen fans can download.

Thanks Zeni.

I thought I had this, but the one I thought was it is actually the English doco -Champions of the World-.

So thank you very much.

It would have been an interesting line up of RT, BM, JD and Jimmy Carter as lead singer!
