All eyes are on Liverpool as the city holds the final of the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday evening – but the spotlight was on Edinburgh back in 1972.
Held at the Usher Hall, the much-loved event was staged here after Monaco, who the competition won in 1971, were unable to meet the huge demands of hosting the show and could not find a suitable venue.
Taking place on March 25, 1972, Eurovision was hosted by Scottish ballet dancer Moira Shearer and screened on the BBC.
Representing the UK that year were The New Seekers with the song Beg, Steal Or Borrow.
Up against 17 other countries, they were respectable runners-up to Luxembourg's Vicky Leandross, whose song Apres Toi garnered 128 points to the UK's 114.
