Freddie Mercury - The Great Pretender Revealed

This is the inside story of the Freddie Mercury you never knew. A behind the scenes story focussing on the two years that changed his life: from the summer of 1985 at Live AID when he achieved his greatest musical triumph to the spring of 1987 when he faced his deepest fears and was diagnosed with AIDS. It’s the true story of his battle to keep his privacy against a prying tabloid press, to work despite crippling pain and to confound science and save his life. Blending dramatization of key scenes with rare archive and illuminating interviews with close friends, including his bodyguard and chauffeur Terry Giddings who breaks silence for the first time, it’s the revealing story of Freddie Mercury: The Great Pretender.
