On May 7th at 3:00 pm Uk time, BBC London Live celebrate Depeche Mode's 10th studio album release with a 2 hour special, hosted by Gary Crowley. With a history spanning over 20 years, the programme brings together for the first time fresh interview footage from all of the past and present band members, as well as journalists, DJ's from across the water and those integral to the band's success.
Hear how Mute Records supremo Daniel Miller first decided Depeche Mode were key talent and instigated an infamous 'handshake deal' with the teenagers that has remained concrete for over 2 decades.
Vince Clarke candidly admits the reasons behind why he left the band just as they started making it big whilst Andy Fletcher admits the band were not worried by the departure of their main songwriter.
Alan Wilder reveals how he eventually became Vince's replacement and details the rocky but enjoyable journey he took with the band until his decision to follow in Vince's footsteps and walk away from Depeche Mode in 1995.
Get the inside information on the troubles with Dave Gahan during the 90's with his drug addiction, and hear first hand how Anton Corbijn, the band's visual director, heard from REM frontman Michael Stipe that Gahan was in turmoil.
The documentary concludes with all 3 remaining band members reflecting on their careers, and the ups and down of their time with Depeche Mode - from playing in front of 70,000 fans at the Rose Bowl, Pasadena, to how the band came through their personal problems and the tension to relaunch themselves and produce their new album, Exciter.
In documenting the band's rise from Basildon minnows to stadium-filling giants, Gary Crowley finds out what makes the band, and what moves the band. Hear the story of how an electronic 4-piece group conquered the world, against all odds, to become one of this country's finest and most important products.

News April 19th 2001

In the french TV Show PLUS VITE QUE LA MUSIQUE on TV Channel M6 on Saturday April 27th 2001 at 8:00 pm there will be an interview of Depeche Mode in that show.
here is the text of presentation taken from that site:

Dépeche Mode Dans la longue série « On achève bien les dinosaures… » voici encore un groupe historique qui refuse de mourir : Depeche Mode c’est LE groupe fondateur de l’électro-pop branchée désespoir-je-m’habille-en-noir des années 80. Mélodies raffinées, boîtes à rythmes martiales, esthétique sado-maso, les Depeche Mode ont sorti la pop de son adolescence, et défriché le terrain qui menait à la techno actuelle, tout en restant grand public. Après 40 millions de disques vendus, un album hommage remarqué (avec notamment The Cure, les Smashing Pumpkins et Placebo), et un best-of automatiquement best-seller, Masters and Servants reprennent le collier pour un nouvel album très techno qui va en scotcher plus d’un (puisqu’on vous le dit !)


In the french radio called France Inter on the show called Play-List, (everyday between 3:00 pm and 4:00pm), Laurent Lavige said that Dave, would be in his show on May 17th and May 18th
