Well, I certainly hope that some of you English fans will tape it and put it on youtube for all of the unfortunate Amercian fans. We Americans are always getting screwed when it come to stuff like this!

I've stopped watching, what a pile of shit. Typical ITV bollocks.

Told you nothing so far, apart from he was in a band called Queen who did that Bohemian Rhapsody song and became famous, he was Indian, a raging homosexual and died of AIDS.

Nothing about his music, apart from Robbie Williams and McFly saying hes great in riddles and nothing about Mary Austin.

Waste of time.

Well to be honest ITV are a pathetic channel - everything they do it's just a laugh - their news, their sports coverage, like take the world cup. Absolute idiots - reality tv, crap dramas about detectives and coronation street - fucking bullshit.

Anyway ITV are going down hill as can be backed up by its falling share price.

I didn't see the programme but as the guy who said it was crap i believe that person

I learnt nothing from it, but your average ITV watcher probably would have learnt a bit, although 45 minutes (less 2 ad breaks) is hardly enough to cover the subject in any depth at all.

Pretty sure it was 3 ad-breaks...

Where was Brian? Ill? Bored? In a burns-unit, threatening to sue Apple? It's not like him to not contribute to something like this.

And what new bits were there (apart from the celeb interviews)? A couple of snippets of the Wigg interviews were new to me. Particularly interesting was Fred demanding that it not be reported that he's in a steady relationship with a man, but rather that he's just in a steady relationship.

I thought exactly the same. That was the only thing I didn't know, and it was very interesting. I thought he'd never tried to hide his sexuality, but had never openly admitted it either.

I don't blame him, but it's interesting.

I'd seen the footage of him in the bath fooling around and acting extremely childlike before, but it still seems a very different image of him. Even if you accept he was shy in private, this is a very different side from what you think of as a very strong character. I guess everyone's gotta let their hair down at times!!!

Watched this last night and was thoroughly embarassed by it.

My parents saw it too and made the comment that all anyone would get out of the show was the knowledge that FM was a complete bender who lived in New York.

Would be interesting to see who gave the final go-ahead for this to be broadcast actually. I can't believe that Kashmira had actually seen it before it aired; same with Roger.

Still, just goes to prove that the management of the Queen / Freddie Mercury legacy is STILL a complete mess.

Good job I got rid of the bulk of my Queen collection when I did eh!?

yeah have to say that i was a little disappointed; they seemed to skip straight from his school days to Queen, which I didn't think was right. plus i have to agree, the ad breaks were squeezed in and frustrating - wish they'd put it on bbc at least, cantstand adverts! nevertheless, it was nice to have a new special dedicated to freddie on the television.
