Live from the Theatre Municipal, Luxemburg Commentary by Terry Wogan
The United Kingdom will be looking for its fifth Grand Prix win when Belle and the Devotions take to the stage to sing 'Love games', composed by PAUL CURTIS and GRAHAM SACHER and conducted by JOHN COLEMAN.
Having first entered the contest in 1957, the UK has four wins and a record ten seconds to its credit.
It was in 1967 that Sandie Shaw sang 'Puppet on a string' to victory in Vienna. Two years later, in Madrid, Lulu gave us our second Eurovision win when 'Boom bang a bang' shared first place with songs from France, Spain and The Netherlands. The Hague was the setting for the UK's third win when Brotherhood of Man sang 'Save your kisses for me' in 1976. Bucks Fizz borrowed the luck of the Irish in 1981 when the foursome took the coveted prize with 'Making your mind up' in Dublin.
So can Belle and the Devotions bring the UK its fifth victory this year? All will be revealed tonight.
Presented by RTL (Luxemburg)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
