As ITV reveals the results of an exclusive poll to find the Nation’s Favourite Queen Song, this programme tells the stories behind the band’s greatest hits. Which one will be the winner? We Are the Champions, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Don’t Stop Me Now, Bohemian Rhapsody, I Want To Break Free, We Will Rock You – or some other classic? There are in-depth interviews with band members Brian May and Roger Taylor and revealing insights from those who knew Queen best. This is the history of the quartet’s greatest moments. Not so much a band, more a national treasure.
