ITV Freddie Mercury Documentary coming this Autumn


Lesley-Ann Jones filmed with ITV Productions for a feature-length documentary about Freddie Mercury today. Due to air this coming autumn, to commemorate what would have been his 70th birthday as well as his 25th Anniversary (say it ain’t so), it will also be seen in the US, South America, Japan and various European territories.

Freddie’s close friend Paul Gambaccini, costume designer Diana Moseley (who swirled up that glorious cape and crown ensemble sported by Freddie during the ‘Magic’ tour 1986), songwriter and producer Mike Moran (who created ‘Barcelona’ with Freddie and Monserrat Caballé), Freddie’s closest journalist friend David Wigg, Tim Rice (who co-wrote songs for the ‘Barcelona’ album) and her memories earlier doc-makers didn’t quite reach.
