Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody was the UK’s Christmas number 1 in 1975. Forty years later, the song is performed by a duet from the English National Ballet, a string quartet from the Royal Academy of Music and Trinity Boys Choir, cut with archive footage of Queen’s performance on Christmas Eve in 1975.

This Friday night at 10pm on Channel 4 will be the premiere of the brand new Queen Documentary” Rags To Rhapsody”.

As ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ marks its 40th Anniversary, this new 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.
