Pick of the Day

ABBA Night on BBC Two

Here’s a timely compilation of shows featuring Sweden’s greatest export - which should make this a great Saturday night for the sofa (mi-re-do).

ABBA at the BBC, 8.00pm, BBC Two

A collection of memorable performances by the Saab four.

Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad were thrust into the global limelight in 1974 when Waterloo won the Eurovision Song Contest.

Various outings were captured by BBC cameras over the next few years and several are featured here alongside their Top of the Pops debut, archive interviews and footage featuring hits including Waterloo, Dancing Queen, Thank You for the Music, SOS, and Fernando.

There is also a chance to see the foursome on a 1982 edition of Noel Edmonds' Late, Late Breakfast Show, which was Abba's last televised appearance in the UK.

The Joy of ABBA, 9.00pm, BBC Two

Documentary exploring how the pop group raised the bar for their music genre in the 1970s and early '80s, popularising the sound of Swedish melancholy.

The programme explores how the quartet of Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad came to dominate the charts with catchy tunes - but also divided opinion.

Agnetha: ABBA and After, 10.00pm, BBC Two

This documentary tells the story of Agnetha Faltskog's music career as both a member of the Swedish pop group and a successful solo singer in her own right.

Including interviews with Gary Barlow, who featured on her 2013 album, as well as bandmates Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, DJ Tony Blackburn and lyricist Tim Rice.

ABBA in Switzerland, 11.00pm, BBC Two

This is the group's first European TV special, recorded on location in the Swiss Alps in 1979.

It features performances of songs including Take a Chance On Me, Mamma Mia, Chiquitita, Does Your Mother Know and Thank You For The Music.

It’s not all ABBA though, as there are guest appearances by Kate Bush and Roxy Music.

Stieg Larsson's Millennium, 9.30pm, BBC Four

Adaptation of the trilogy of novels, beginning with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

A disgraced journalist and a troubled computer hacker are hired by a member of a wealthy family whose niece disappeared 40 years ago.

He's convinced she was murdered by one of his own relatives, and wants them to find the evidence - but the family will go to any lengths to conceal their secrets.

Starring Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace. In Swedish and English.

Living With Hitler, 7.50pm, RTÉ2

This is a fascinating series, but should not be confused with Living With Lucy.

As the title suggests, it looks at the events that the German population and the people of the occupied countries lived through in the Nazi era from 1933 to 1945.

The opening episode focuses on how Hitler's grip on power becomes absolute, as the Nazi flag flew everywhere and the Nazi salute became compulsory.
