Three brand new ABBA documentaries will premiere on SVT in Sweden during the 2012 holiday season. Carl Magnus is the co-producer of the films together with Roger Backlund and Viktor Petrovski of the production company Happy Monday Media. The films have been directed by Carl Magnus and Roger Backlund.
This is the first time in several decades that Swedish-produced programmes about ABBA are broadcast in the group’s home country.
The three titles are:
This film covers the making and impact of ABBA’smost famous song, but also ABBA’s success story with a special focus on the Australian Abbamania.
ABBA – When Four Became One (Swedish title: ABBA – Vägen till Waterloo).
In this film we take a look at the pre-ABBA lives and careers of Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida. The film follows their story up to their Eurovision Song Contest victory in Brighton.
This film approaches the ABBA phenomenon from a visual point of view. We tell the story of how their stage costumes, album sleeves and promo clips were made, and the part they played in the construction of the group’s image.
The films will be broadcast on SVT at 8 pm on December 26, January 2 and January 9. The films are made for an international market and will be broadcast in other territories in due course. Watch this space for news about upcoming broadcasts.
