On February 1979, ABBA went to Switzerland, where the band made a TV special called ABBA in Switzerland, held in Leysin. On this program, ABBA performed the songs Take A Chance On Me, The King Has Lost His Crown, The Name Of The Game, Eagle, Mamma Mia, Hole In Your Soul, Kisses Of Fire, Lovers (Live A Little Longer), Chiquitita, Does Your Mother Know and Thank You For The Music, promoting with many of them their new album, Voulez Vous, still unreleased at that time.
During that visit, ABBA recorded Chiquitita promo video, produced by BBC, which was also included in this special. I selected some of the photos and videos of this here. I hope you like it!

ABBA at a ski resort
Benny and Frida look SO tired...
Björn and Agnetha were divorced at that time, but it's great to see they were still great friends, playing together

ABBA with someone else
Ohh, this photo is definitely one of the best
Benny's sweetly supporting his head on Frida's chest - probably with the intention of helping her to remain on her feet -, while Agnetha is almost sitting on the ice...
... and, finally, on the floor!
I love Frida's clumsy way - maybe because I identify myself with it
This couple was very attached to each other, indeed!
Anna is almost falling...
... she's already on the floor, but Björn keeps trying to stand up...
Well, he didn't get it!
Following, some of the best ABBA performances in that special (in my opinion):
The King Has Lost His Crown
Kisses Of Fire
Thank You For The Music
On ice - they're absolutely funny on it!
