According to the 2001 census, Elstree, in North London/Hertfordshire, had a population of 1900, less than a fifth of the size of the average British town.

A studio was founded there in 1914, and it has been at the center of the British film (and later TV) industry ever since, though in 1980 when this song was released, it was in a period of decline. Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody
" was one of the many music videos to be made there. The BBC would eventually become the biggest name at Elstree. Running to 4 minutes 33 seconds, this nostalgic ode was written by Geoff Downes
and Trevor Horn.
