New ABBA Documentary On Aussie TV in September !

The second installment from Carl Magnus Palm 'When Four Become One' will air on Channel 7 on 3rd September 2013 at 10.30pm.

This documentary follows his first one 'ABBA: Dancing Queen'.

We all know the ABBA story, but what did Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida do before they became ABBA? When the group won the Eurovision Song Contest with Waterloo, it was not a case of overnight success – the members already had a decade behind them as artists: as struggling solo performers and dance band singers, and as members of some of the biggest band of the Sixties. This compelling film traces the lives of the four ABBA members and their journey towards stardom, step by step, chapter by chapter, showing the organic evolution of one of the truly legendary pop acts.
For the first time, a television programme goes in-depth on the dramatic pre-ABBA story and its tale of tentative beginnings, success, failure, false starts and setbacks, along the winding road that ultimately led to the triumph in Brighton. The story is told with the aid of rare archive material (some of which hasn’t been seen or heard in public before) and brand new interviews with those who were there at the time: the fellow band members who witnessed Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida’s rise to fame; the man who signed Agnetha to her first recording contract; and others who travelled alongside ABBA and their legendary and controversial manager, Stig Anderson, on the road to Waterloo.
Naturally, the film is chock-full of music: by the individual members in their early careers, but also by ABBA themselves.
