Molly Meldrum hosts this loving look at the highs the lows, the hair and the flares - and the seemingly endless comebacks of the Nordic four.

Having played a major part in Abba's success story, Molly brings a unique perspective to the 'Swedish Beatles'' story in 'Abba Re-Bjorn' - at one stage even throwing to a 1976 interview he did with the band long before the cowboy hat become his trademark.

All clips featured in the special have been digitally remastered. They include the band's 2004 critically acclaimed collaboration (and the sensation of this year's Eurovision Song Contest) - 'The Last Video'.

A fitting celebration of Abba taking out the honours in that contest back in 1974, all four members of the band teamed up exclusively for 'The Last Video' sharing the screen with ever so cute puppet versions of themselves. The six minute video (which will be played in full) also features the Young One's Rik Mayall and a cameo from Cher. Even the reclusive Anna makes an appearance.

Complete with fascinating vintage footage, ABBA RE-BJORN is a celebration of everything Abba.
