Plans for Take That’s 30th anniversary celebrations are well underway and it’s safe to say that they’re going all out to mark their incredible milestone.
In addition to their revamped greatest hits album Odyssey, and a huge UK and European tour which will take place next year, it has been announced that Take That will celebrate their anniversary with a special one-off documentary on BBC One.
Take That and Us will celebrate the band’s three decades in the music industry, combining exclusive previously unseen material with stories from fans across the world. Made by Indigo Television, the hour long special will see Gary, Mark, and Howard react to their fans’ stories whilst also contributing their own favourite memories.
With Take That having impacted on the lives of many over the years, Thatters are being encouraged to share their stories which will potentially be included in the documentary. If you’ve got a special story to share about how Take That have changed your life, head to www.mytakethatstory.com and upload your video by Wednesday October 31.

Speaking about That That and Us, 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..!”
Excitedly, Take That added: “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. 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”
Take That and Us will be broadcast on BBC One later this year.
