On Sunday 20th Channel 5 will be launching a new documentary series about the rock icon and Queen front-man Freddie Mercury titled: Freddie Mercury: Who Wants to Live Forever. The film follows the story of the musician from Queens performance at live aid in 1985 to 1987 when Freddie was diagnosed with AIDS. This series is presented as a “docu drama” which means while the film uses much archive footage and interviews with people who were in direct contact with the star during this period such a Freddies’ body guard Terry Giddings, it is mostly a reconstruction of key events.
Freddie Mercury: Who Wants to Live Forever, is a story of dealing with the terrible affliction of AIDS but not only that, it is also the battle of privacy and the prying press in a time that was totally different to the one we live in today.
