You need to access the first record before asking for its attributes.
Also, path expressions don't play nicely with integer indexes, so you
need to use Python:

  <td tal:content="python: x[0]['full_name']" />

You can use 'tal:condition repeat/licenses/start' to test that you are
in the first pass through the loop.
