Take That get BBC special to mark anniversary

Share article:

Take That will mark their 30th anniversary with a new BBC One documentary.

"Take That and Us", which will air later this year, will feature fans sharing their stories of how the boy band affected their lives as well as the trio's own reflections on their years on the spotlight.

Made by Indigo Television, the show will follow Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, and Howard Donald as they meet fans and react to their stories, adding their own favourite memories into the mix.

The band said in a statement: "Has it really been 30 years? There's only one way to find out we said, as we accepted the offer of taking a closer look at our three decades in music. "

The programme will include previously-unseen footage shot by the "Back for Good" group - which used to also include Jason Orange and Robbie Williams - in their early days, as well as more recent material.

They continued: "We've handed over our own personal camcorders from the 90s, we've asked fans to share their stories from over the years and we're bringing the story up to date by sharing some behind the scenes from our lives today as we prepare for the launch of our Greatest Hits record"

Kate Phillips, Controller of Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC, said: "This entertaining programme will shine a light on how everything changes as we celebrate the band and the music they've created over an incredible career."

Producers Indigo TV said: "It's incredible to think that Take That and their music have been part of our lives and entertaining us for nearly three decades.

"As we - and the band - will discover in this close-up 30th anniversary special, Take That have influenced a generation of fans and sometimes in ways you might not expect!"
