For those of you who wondered about whether this DVD included The Prophets Song I can tell you that it is included. Its in the extras bit - all 11.35 seconds of it and tells of a demo version that Kenny Everett nicked to play on his radio show!!

Also included is a piano version of God Save The Queen which is a very rough demo guide for the proper version!!!

All in all this is a very good DVD imho.

I'm looking forward to checking this out. I have a question though. There a two editions of this being released. The "special edition" from what I gather will also include the 24bit dvd remaster of the original recording.

So is this the same disc the was just released as the 30th anniversary edition? sorry if this question has already been asked.

it looks like it. If I get the DVD it will be the single disc edition (the BBC show with the extra tracks chucked in).

I got my (premium edition) copy today; I'm pretty sure the 2nd disc is the same as the ANATO dvd, but I haven't had time to compare them minutely.

I like the extras on the first disc though the Prophet's Song should have been included in the original programme.

I noticed that Best Buy has this for pre-order on their website for $12.59 with free shipping. They don't mention the special edition. I assume this must be the single disc version. That's the best price I've seen for it yet.

Yeah, I thought there were gonna be one or two extras on the second disc that weren't on the special edition of ANATO, but it looks like its just gonna be the same now, so hopefully I can just buy the one disc version.

On the original DVD from the 30th anniversary release it was only in DTS 5.1. The official Queen website is claiming this new issue of the DVD is in DTS and DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1. Is this true?

It's a nice DVD, but I wish they had re-edited the extra parts back into the documentary, or given the option of seamless branching, as it would have been better to have been able to view the whole thing complete, rather than having to go to the extras for Prophet's, the whole of Sweet Lady, and other bits. It was obviously all in one at one stage.

When was the doc filmed?
Roger and Bri look a bit younger than there more recent 'haggard look' (want of a better word!).

Bri's hair even has a bit of bounce in it like the old days and he even mentions that it Was 20 years ago since he did Good Company.

Surely he means 30 years or was it filmed earlier than last year?

I was going to get this for the Dolby Digital mix- I play surround through my computer, and cant decode DTS currently.
So can someone who actually has this confirm for me whether all or part actually is mixed into Dolby, or whether thats not true, as suggested above - Im a tad confused!
Cheers!

cheers for the info - I had kinda thought about updating my software...
Although I suppose by "freely available" you mean illegally available on bitorrent - unfortunately Im against stealing software as I am music - I may buy the platinum at a computer fair.
I take it by your answer the new release doesnt have a dolby mix though? lol
