Season 2, Episode ?

Pierre Salinger (former Press Secretary to President John F Kennedy) interviewed Stig Anderson in Stockholm and we saw ABBA at sound checks/rehearsals, in make-up and in concert on their 1979 tour.

ABBA were also briefly interviewed back at Polar Music Studios and sang a little bit of Thank You For The Music live at the end but it's pretty half-hearted!

The producer was Nola Safro.

Holy Merchandising Batman! It's none other than Burt Ward, the boy wonder!
