  • SINOSSI:

    This is the most authoritative biography of the pop group Abba ever made. It features all their hits, specially recorded interviews with all the band members and others from Pete Waterman to Bono and deals with not only Ann-Frid, Bjorn, Benny and Agnetha's pre-Abba years and Abba years, but also with extraordinary phenomenon of the Musica, Mama Mia!, based on their music. The programme features 19 of Abba's greatest hit songs, and takes us from the sixties in Sweden, when Bjorn and Benny were what Bjorn calls the 'musical motors' of their own pop groups, Anni-Frid was a successful solo singer and Agnetha was making a name for herself as a singer and songwriter, up to the anniversary of Mama Mia!, when 3 of the quartet appeared on stage and Ann-Frid sang along with the cast. It tells a story of great success, when the two men married the two women in the group, had a string of number one hots and toured to massive acclaim. This success even outlasted both marriages ending in divorce, when Abba's music developed from cheery upbeat numbers to sad and poignant songs, but eventually the strain was too great and the group disbanded in 1982.
