    "Jock McGregor" should read Jock MacGregor.

    "Dagma Winter" should read Dagmar Winter - she went on to become a major star under the name Dana Wynter.

    "Then an item on Arthur Watkins" - the man introducing this section is actor Peter Arne.

    "blonde up and coming starlet" - her name is Margaret Simons.
