If you fancy listening to some classic Abba songs and their appearances on the BBC then this programme is for you.
Abba won the 1974 Eurovision song contest held in Britain and pretty soon they were on Top of the Pops rather worse for wear with all the celebrations singing their winning entry Waterloo.
Abba had a meteoric rise and really were at one time the biggest band in the world we see some their performances at the BBC like entertaining holidaymakers in Torbay in a 1975 Seaside Special and clips from the 1979 BBC special Abba in Switzerland. Mike Yarwood always boasted that at their prime and their busy schedule he managed to coax them into appearing on his show and you see them singing Thank you for the music.
Abba's final BBC appearance was on The Late Late Breakfast show in 1982 where they refute the rumours that the band are splitting up but then they did. An end of the greatest Euro pop band in history.
The programme does cheat a bit by showing some videos and promotional films rather than performances at the BBC.
