Additional information

Mies was the First Lady of Dutch TV Mies Bouwman’s own successful, 1-hour long live talk show. It was broadcast LIVE weekly on AVRO from 6 October 1981 to 25 December 1982.

Frida appeared on this show and was shown arriving with another guest on the show - Cliff Richard.  She was then briefly interviewed by Mies followed by a performance of To Turn The Stone in front of a very lively audience. Frida starts off the performance singing live over the backing track but then carries on lip-synching when she realises her microphone is on.

The audience were all given a booklet when entering the studio which included a small biography of Frida.

Cliff was also interviewed by Mies and performed Where Do We Go From Here.
