In 1971, four university students got together to form the band, Queen. Forty years later, they have released 26 albums and sold more than 300 million records worldwide.
Queen: Days Of Our Lives covers the band's early struggles and obstacles, the successes, arguments, breakups, triumphs, tragedies and their enduring legacy - dazzling music and thrilling live performances from every corner of the globe.
Part one charts the band's early story, from their meeting at London's Imperial College, to their first albums which struggled to sell and their cringing stints on Top Of The Pops.
The documentary reveals how four strong minded individuals, all capable of writing massive hit songs, worked together so successfully for four decades.
It also recounts the band's feuds, and their battles with The New Musical Express, as well as their rise to success during the 70s, which made them the world's biggest band by 1980.
