So I found a few new uploads and someone uploaded this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtS6XVggljA which I've never seen before. And it's from Ina MEDIAPRO archives and, I found even more but you have to make an account and it's possible (if you work for a TV/Radio coompany) but I want to know how. Because there is a lot more stuff.... French TV is very cool.

Actually this show was broadcast on the Belgian RTBF French-speaking TV channel, and was host by the late Gilles Verlant (who later became a famous journalist on French TV). Unfortunately, Ultravox wasn't very much promoted in France at that time (the band was seen as too 'pompous' by the French medias), and fans had to rely on Belgian or even Swiss Tv to watch them... :-(

Here are other links to Ultravox on French Tv though:

Well, you may easily imagine my kind of frustration at that time, as I remember I was the only Ultravox fan in my class, while my mates were crazy about Depeche Mode or even Duran Duran... ;-)

What's for sure is that Ultravox has never been considered much by the medias in France. That's a matter of fact.
