A brand new BBC documentary is to be broadcast to celebrate rock band Queen's 40th anniversary.
The major two-part BBC Two show, entitled Queen: Days of Our Lives will see Roger Taylor and Brian May looking back at the bands incredible career in candid detail for the first time.
The two one hour programmes explore the remarkable story of Brian, Roger, John Deacon and Freddie Mercury - looking into the early struggles, huge obstacles, success, arguments, breakups, triumph, tragedy and an enduring legacy all against a backdrop of brilliant music and stunning live performances.
With an extensive archive of unseen footage plus remarkable archive interviews with Freddie Mercury, the documentary is the bands story in their own words a compelling journey told with intelligence, wit, plenty of humour and painful honesty.
The programme's producer, Rhys Thomas, said that he and his team set out to make the definitive Queen documentary:
"It's a funny, honest, inspiring and ultimately tragic account of a certain band called Queen, as told by the band themselves.
"We tell the story of four students who met in West London, slogged hard and conquered the world, ultimately changing rock music forever."
The band will also be previewing the documentaries in a rare radio interview, as they guest live on the Chris Evans BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show on 27 May.
Catch Queen: Days of Our Lives on 29 and 30 May on BBC Two.
