Video - information
The actual gig, compered by DJ John Peel, wasn't recorded, although Roger Taylor did invite along a friend of his, future Queen photographer Douglas Puddifoot. As well as shooting stills from the right of the stage, Puddifoot also captured around three minutes of the band's performance on a black-and-white, 8mm home movie.
The footage is silent and is far from optimum quality, but nevertheless still survives. Just over a minute's worth of the film was included in the Champions Of The World documentary, overdubbed with excerpts from Step On Me and April Lady from the Mercury De Lane Lea session, which somewhat ironically, had still to be recorded.
