Filmed live on Christmas Eve 1975 at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, and bringing to a climax the most eventful and exciting year so far in the band’s career, this ground-breaking concert was transmitted live on BBC Two’s Old Grey Whistle Test and captured the band firing on all cylinders as they performed breakthrough hits like Killer Queen, Liar, Keep Yourself Alive and Now I’m Here, as well as the now monumental classic Bohemian Rhapsody.
Offering an illuminating insight into the game-changing year of 1975, the documentary digs deep into archive to tell the story of Queen as it follows their journey from a struggling band gigging at pubs and colleges to the moment they captured the UK’s hearts and minds with what was to become one of - if not the - greatest song of all time. Queen’s formative years have never been explored in such detail. With a wealth of unseen interviews, recently unearthed rushes of Queen’s first ever video and outtakes from the recording sessions of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ itself, this is the unique story of early Queen told by the band themselves.
