Additional information

Björn filmed two projects for BBC children's broadcasting issues whilst sitting in the Polar Music Studios area of ABBA The Museum in Stockholm.

  1. CBeebies Bedtime Story
    Broadcast: Friday 7 February 2020, CBeebies, 18:50, UK
    Björn read out a story called Goat's Coat written by Tom Percival with illustrations by Christine Pym.  The book, clearly for little children, is available and published by Bloomsbury Children's Books.
    Björn really got into the story, delivering it in a perfect manner for an under 5 year-old ready for bedtime.

  2. CBeebies Bedtime Story
    Broadcast: Saturday 16 May 2020, C Beebies, 18:50, UK
    Björn read out another story, clearly recorded at the same time as the one above.  This time the story was The Storm Whale by Benji Davies.

  3. Bring the Noise is an educational campaign set to help primary school teachers and parents inspire children to become musicians and see the joys of music-making.  
    Björn was asked a series of questions that appeared on the screen and then he provided his answers.  The questions were:

    1. First musical memory?
    2. First musical instrument?
    3. Favourite sound as a child?
    4. How important is music?
    5. How can music help?
    6. Why should children learn music?
    7. How can music help in school?
    8. Any advice for teachers?
    9. Playing music in a group?
