(This entry was previously called Système 2 - now confirmed as Ring Parade - apparently Ring Parade was shown every Sunday at 7.30pm and Système 2 the same day at 8.30pm.)
Show background: Every Sunday evening, during the 1970s there was a TV show hosted by Guy Lux and Sophie Darel. The name of the show changed with the years (French Cancan, Domino, Ring Parade/Système 2, Top Club, Cadence 3). Ring Parade was shown every Sunday at 7.30pm and was a competition featuring approximately six songs/artists. This was followed by the news between 8.00pm and 8.30pm followed by Système 2. Système 2 was a 70-80 minute show with several artists. During the show, viewers got the results of the Ring Parade competition. ABBA appeared in Ring Parade or in Système 2 but it seems that Ring Parade was, sometimes, listed as Système 2 by the French TV archives (INA) in the 70s.
ABBA performed "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" to playback on this show hosted by Guy Lux and Sophie Darel.
An "ABBA on TV" exclusive - these colour pictures are being shared for the first
time since the original broadcast from what I can gather. Extra
pictures at the end indicate that ABBA were present throughout the whole
programme when all the live stars
waved to the audience.
