Documentary charting the reunion of Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, Mark Owen and Robbie Williams. Following the (no longer boy) band for 12 months, the film shows how the reunion happened, and follows the group as they record an album together for the first time in 15 years.

Format: DVD
When Robbie Wiliams returned to Take That and they set about recording a new album (the now record-breaking 'Progress') they had two young documentary-makers filming them, in the studio and out of it, in the process of writing, recording, laughing, arguing, reflecting, crying, breaking down and making up that brought the album and the new line-up together.

Any fan will tell you that watching Take That together is always a joy and there are some brilliant moments here, as well as a rawness and honesty that one rarely if ever sees from other groups about how they really feel about each other, their past, their present, everything. It's a genuinely fascinating fim that will have you laughing out loud and maybe even getting a bit choked up.

It was shown on TV a few weeks ago, but that was an edited down version that lost 40 minutes, including, in my opinion, some of the best bits. 5 million people watched and enjoyed it but, honestly, the full version is even better!

It was fun and interesting to see what goes on in the recording studio, especially since after 15 years all original band members are together again. Good to see how mature they are all are, really liked the little ins and outs and the flashbacks.
I never realized how making an album went, so was fun to see that. I love their album Progress, it is beyond everything they made in the past (Take That early year, Robbie Williams solo, Take that re-united in 2007). I think it's also a very personal album, which in my opinion adds to its value.

Purchased this because I only caught half of the documentary on TV.
It is a must for all TT fans and covers the story of making Progress and the challenges faced.
We can see the 3 main songwriters-Barlow, Williams, Owen-putting together the album, which I found the most interesting, seeing how the songs come together, what works and what doesn't.
There are frank interviews with all 5 members, covering Robbie's departure, the war of words between Robbie and Gary, and fears over whether working with him would change the dynamics of the group, and whether it would be destructive again.
Absorbing from start to finish.

I'm not a die hard take that fan, but after seeing their amazing performance at wembley in July, I was interested to see what the making of the album was like, as I was a fan in my early teens. This documentary tells a good story of the lads, with honest footage and you get an understanding of their relationship. Would recommend to people who enjoy their music.

By Mr. C. Gelderd VINE VOICE on 28 April 2015
Format: Blu-ray
This documentary charts the progress of 90s British band Take That, re-formed in their original 5 piece line up as they embark on the journey to record a new album for the first time in over 15 years. It clocks in at 60mins, but leaves you wanting much more!

Looking into what makes a perfect album, a fusion of different genres to stay faithful to their pop roots but modern and contemporary, this moody, atmospheric and mature film shows the highs and lows of what was one of the most excitable reformations in British musical history.

Touching and revealing interviews paint a raw picture for all 5 members as they explain just what motivated them to continue in darker days and what being in the industry means to them.

From composing music and writing lyrics, to keeping their secret quiet when performing on TV and charity events in the public eye, this is a wonderfully entertaining look into the behind-the-scenes journey with Britain's most successful boy/man band.

I've been a fan of Take That since before they broke up and excitedly heard the news of their reunion and comeback as a 4 member group. Unfortunately I was not half as delighted on hearing of Robbie William reuniting with the band. I suppose it's ok, and I quite like their new album Progress, even if I do feel like there's too much of William's influence in it.

This documentary was a real eye opener. As a faithful fan of Gary Barlow, there was really one side you could take in the Barlow-Williams feud and I took it to heart. Williams became a banished artist in my music. And as a person I thought he was just a jealous, little whinny kid, complaining that somebody else was more talented than him.

The documentary really tackles a lot of these questions, making a great continuation from some topics mentioned in 'Take That - For The Record - Official Documentary [Amaray] [DVD], but this time with a lot more input from Robbie. You get to watch the awkwardness of all 5 being in a studio together for the first time in 15 years, with egos and prides rubbing. You follow the evolution of the relationship as well as the making of the album, until the day they finally revealed publicly that they were reuniting as the original line-up again. That this documentary could make me change my mind regarding Robbie Williams after 15 years is nothing short of wondrous, but it did.

For a Take That fan this an absolute must. For a music fan, this is one of the most interesting, raw, honest documentaries I've seen in a long time and should certainly be one for the history books. After all not many bands have had such a tribulated road and survived as well as Take That.

The title of documentary encapsulates perfectly what it contains: a film about progress. Long live TT.
