Queen on vision

In September 1985, whilst Queen were recording the track ‘One Vision‘, they let video directors Rudi Dolezal and Hannes Rossacher have exclusive access to the studios for two weeks, to film the recording process. This footage was later used in the promo video to the track, and was also used in the documentary ‘The Magic Years – Volume I‘ and later as a bonus feature on the ‘Greatest Video Hits II‘ DVD. 

The feature shows Queen at various stages of the recording of the track, and includes various excerpts of guitars, drums, keyboards, bass and vocals, many of which did not make the final version, as well as interviews with the band and producers. 

On ‘The Magic Years’, much of the footage is seen in split screen, with interviews over the top, whilst ‘Greatest Video Hits II’ features very similar footage but in full screen. This page includes details of both featurettes, and a guide to the excerpts included.
