Indeed - "by popular demand", I think the fan-club biography used to say!

To be clear, I was referring to the years from 1977, which is when I first became aware of the band, onwards. Apart from a brief appearance at the Britannia Awards in 1977, Roger & John appearing on Tiswas during the Crazy Tour and Crazy Little Thing Called Love filmed during the soundcheck in Bristol (I think), were there any other appearances on British TV during the late-70s? Nothing immediately springs to mind.


ITV showed a compilation of the Kampuchea shows in early 1980. It was broadcast late on a Sunday night and I think they only included two songs from the Queen set, definitely CLTCL and poss NIH. I remember it very well because I was at the Hammersmith on Boxing Day '79 and knew it had been filmed and had been waiting with bated breath for the show to be screened. Needless to say I was pissed that they only broadcast two songs, and my breath is still bated waiting for someone to give the whole show a professional release!

It was obviously not perfect, and we could all waste loads of time pointing out the flaws, the already-seen footage and the inclusion of a loser from a reality programme and how those minutes and seconds could've been spent on something better, but all in all I liked it a lot.

Highlights:

Spoiler! :
- Recording footage from 'It's Late' and Roger's expression.
- Frederick on the original BHM. A shame we didn't get to hear what he was playing.
- The mix.

Quite possibly the most coherent and accurate riposte I’ve heard for a long time

"This version of it..."

I guess that hopefully answers one question. Fingers crossed the version in the boxset deals with the matter in hand, not what's going on forty years later.

Agreed - but since the doc in the box is still 55 mins, that just means 5 more minutes of archive from the many hours available.

I welcome that, but am not revising my purchase decision for 8% variation in the doc.
