Ricky Valance: My Voice is My Life

Documentary, BBC1 Wales

for Series 1 of “They Sold a Million”.

The first Welshman to reach Number 1, Ricky Valance’s life has been defined by one monster hit: Tell Laura I Love Her. But what is like to be known for just one song when personally and professionally you feel you are so much more? His fans may be aging and the venues may be smaller but, whilst he has his voice, he still takes to the stage 51 years on, determined to dispel the ‘one-hit wonder’ label.
