Sky Arts are dedicating an entire night to Queen which features an excellent documentary

Five hours of the iconic Freddie Mercury and co. Set record.

In terms of great nights for TV, it's arguable that Friday 11, October will be one of the best nights in 2019.

Aside from El Camino: A Breaking Bad film arriving on Netflix, there's also the small matter of Bruce Springsteen and Paul Rudd on the Graham Norton Show and the Late Late Show too.

Well, God bless the person that invented the record function on your Sky/UPC box because Sky Arts will also be competing for your precious TV time tonight. In fact, if you're a Queen fan, you might be glued to the station for almost five hours.

If you love Freddie Mercury and co., prepare to go Radio Ga Ga because they're dedicating five hours to the iconic band.

The evening kicks off at 10pm with聽Queen & Adam Lambert: The Show Must Go On. Granted, he's no Freddie Mercury but nobody is, however, the world's greatest frontman is front and centre for the rest of the evening.

At 11:45, Queen's iconic Wembley gig will be shown and for those that haven't seen it before, the band's performance on the 1986 Magic tour is exemplary.

Riding the crest of a wave following their triumphant Live Aid performance at the same venue the year before, the set features blistering renditions of classic hits Bohemian Rhapsody, I Want to Break Free, We Will Rock You and Radio Ga Ga.

At 1am, documenary fans are in for a treat with Queen - The Magic Years because the film charts the group's rise to fame and eventual superstardom, including profiles of the members who made the band a global success.

To round things off,聽Video Killed the Radio Star聽features interviews聽with members of the band as they discuss the making of some of their most famous music videos, and reflect on how the medium changed the music industry.

We've a feeling that Queen fans will be hitting record.
