06/09/07 : Kim Wilde TV's exclusive summer clip is here!
In 1984, the French channel TF1 recorded a series of summer shows called Passeport Pour La Forme. Filmed in beautiful areas, it was an occasion for well-known singers and sportsmen to have a great stay together during quite a healthy trip.
One of these shows included Kim Wilde promoting her single Dancing In The Dark; I've found it among my treasured self-recorded videos of the 80's, in a mint condition. While watching this clip, you'll certainly enjoy the visual effects "a la Ashes To Ashes" and note that one of the photos taken during the show was used as the sleeve of a French vinyl compilation.

01/01/06 : H*A*P*P*Y N*E*W Y*E*A*R !
2005 is reaching its end and it's time for us to celebrate a brand new year
I'm writing down those few lines while I can still make a difference between a computer keyboard and a bubble of champagne -that is, a few minutes before the party starts.
Today is also the fourth anniversary of this web site. In late 2001, when I started making a draft of kimwildetv, I had no idea what a fantastic experience it would turn to. I thought a handful of people would be interested in watching those nostalgia videos (so was the initial concept), but I was interested in what those people had to say, and that's how kimwildetv became the first interactive multimedia web site dedicated to Kim Wilde.
These days, using peer-to-peer networks to get Kim's videos, and free interactive web tools (such as blog-based sites) to make them available, nearly everyone would be able to build up such a site. However, with more than 10000 visitors per month, the number of visitors of kimwildetv has never stopped growing (see the detailed statistics for 2005). So how do I explain that?
My guess is, far from the technical aspects of the site, kimwildetv has become a place where human beings meet human beings. Right, we've got something in common, we all happen to be (or used to be -or will be) Kim Wilde's fans. But since I have met a couple of you, I can tell that you're all more than Kim Wilde's fans, and that's certainly what makes this site different.
Please accept my best wishes for 2006. And keep in mind: Love Is.. ALL!

The book, released last October, was written by Alain Wodrascka; it deals with the long-time, successful collaboration between the two French musicians Alain Souchon and Laurent Voulzy.
In the mid 80's, the two artists created a song entitled Les Nuits Sans Kim Wilde, a real tribute to Kim; a bit later, she accepted to be a guest star for the shooting of the music video.
In Destins Et Mots Croisés (Les Géants De La Chanson, ed. Didier Carpentier), she writes about this encounter and experience, more generally about her taste for French music.
