Ruby Florence Murray (29 March 1935 – 17 December 1996) was a Northern Irish singer and actress. One of the most popular singers in the British Isles in the 1950s, she scored ten hits in the UK Singles Chart between 1954 and 1959. She also made pop chart history in March 1955 by having five hits in the Top Twenty in a single week.
The 1950s was a busy period for Murray, during which she had her own television show, starred at the London Palladium with Norman Wisdom, appeared in a Royal Command Performance (1955), and toured the world. In a period of 52 weeks, starting on 3 December 1954 and lasting until the end of November 1955, Murray constantly had at least one single in the UK charts – this at a time when only a Top 20 was listed.

The Royal Welsh Male Choir sings to you from the land where fine singing is a tradition. It was founded in 1883 and two years later was accorded the right to use the Royal prefix following a command performance at Windsor Castle before Queen Victoria.

John McHugh was born on July 23, 1911 in Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, England. He is known for his work on I'll Turn to You (1946), I'll Walk Beside You (1943) and The Ken Dodd Show (1959). He died on June 5, 2004 in Penn, Buckinghamshire, England.
