Die Drehscheibe
was a daily tabloid magazine broadcast by ZDF Germany which ran from from 1 April 1964 to March 1982 in the early evening and contained 5,146 Episodes.

As part of a serious report on this German news programme, ABBA are seen relaxing on their island of Viggsö along with Stig and Gudren Anderson and their children, Anders, Lasse and Marie. A very cute little Linda is seen sitting on her parents knees.

The German Kultnacht ABBA special which was broadcast on 2 November 2002 on ZDF, showed a brief interview with Frida and Benny followed by Björn and Agnetha and then there was a performance of SOS sitting on the rocks near their island home.

The original clip however starts out with a performance of Waterloo, a clip of the Bang A Boomerang PROMO , then the interview and SOS. The Waterloo performance was recorded in a Frankfurt park with a castle in 1974 with ABBA in normal clothes running around a castle with a "Napoleon".
