Ord Hamilton took up composing in 1919, after the war, in which he served as a Tommy and as an airman. He has written the scores for three West-End shows and eight films, one of which was Death at Broadcasting House. Among his many song hits were 'You're Blase', 'I'm Seeking a Ladybird', 'Safe in your Arms', and 'The Song of the Grateful Heart'. Viewers will remember his television début at the beginning of January, and his subsequent appearance with the Twentieth-Century Melodians.

Nancy Logan, who has entertained viewers on previous occasions, is a very versatile person indeed. She has appeared in several radio shows, including The January Revue, and in Empire programmes she has written several numbers for and played in successful shows such as Each Hour of Every Day and Trunk Call.
A recent achievement of hers was the writing of the musical score for The Melody That Got Lost, produced at the Embassy Theatre at Christmas, with herself at the piano, and Victoria Hopper and Esmond Knight playing leads; and, not content with being a composer and a pianist, she had a part in Evelyn Waugh's Vile Bodies at the Vaudeville. Last summer she further showed her versatility with a broadcast of a classical piano recital.
