Freddie Mercury: The Great Pretender – Director’s Cut

Film-maker Rhys Thomas's full-length director's cut of his film exploring the solo career and private life of  Freddie Mercury  can be seen on BBC4 on Saturday 29th December at 21:00. Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes 

Renowned as the bravura front man of one of Britain's greatest rock bands, Freddie Mercury's life outside Queen is rarely celebrated or explored. This film explores Mercury's solo projects and interests, including a previously unheard collaboration with Michael Jackson and the triumphant Barcelona project with Dame Montserrat Caballe as well as the life of a gay man who was not yet publicly out.

Rare interviews reveal a shy man in search of love, and a driven artist living behind the protection of his stage persona.
