Unidentified: Further Information Required
(page last updated: 16/10/2004)
with some updates, a new entry, and re-numbering to close gaps created by solved queries
Also see the Snippets Page which has more information that needs confirmations or further details.
This page contains information given to me of some films and TV programmes where the actresses name (and sometimes the title) are unknown. Or where there is insufficient information to add a proper entry to the site.
If you are able to help with any - or if you have any unknowns of your own you would like to see solved, then please contact me here
This is in addition to the Queries Page which contains known actresses where it is only the title that is unknown.
10) HOWARD'S WAY
(BBC1/1985-90, 65 episodes)
Someone recalls that this series had some nudity when originally shown although it was all cut out when repeated on UK Gold. Possibly Francesca Gonshaw featured in one such scene. Also there is a screenshot of Tracey Childs topless which was thought to be a fake but perhaps it's not and comes from this series?
Does anyone have any firm recollections or other evidence of scenes that appeared in this series?
OUTSTANDING OR RECENTLY SOLVED QUERIES
1) The History Man (BBC/1981)
Unknown topless girl dancing at a party. Not sure if she was just an extra or an actress who featured in other scenes.
2) Unknown Programme (TV/approx 1985)
Unknown actress topless in bed with Jesse Birdsall when they are interrupted by another man.
Note - Jesse Birdsall played the villain Marcus Tandy in Eldorado.
15/02/2002: Not from Annika (ITV/1984)
3) Making Out (BBC1/1989-1991)
Jane Hazlegrove - does anyone remember her being topless in this. It has been suggested that she may have been by a correspondent, who read about it in a newspaper at the time but didn't actually see it.
5) Bluebell (BBC1/1986-87)
Period drama series. The true story of Margaret Kelly (played by Carolyn Pickles) who rose from a poor background to found her own Bluebell Dance Troupe in Paris.
Given the subject it seems very likely there was nudity in this - if anyone remembers any details that would be useful.
14/01/2002: Annie Lambert was topless in this - standing as part of a tableau on stage (thanks r_gb)
Any further recollections from this series would still be welcome

Unknown Actress (about 35-40 years old). A long scene in a bedroom with Bob Peck (he's clothed). He receives a phone call and goes out of the room she sits up in bed and throws a pillow at the door. The scene continues with Terence Rigby and a plain looking girl ringing Bob Peck from what looks like a railway station.
Not Miranda Richardson in "After Pilkington"
Not "Who Bombed Birmingham?" - which Bob Peck and Terence Rigby were in together.
Not from "Natural Lies".
16/10/2004: This programme has been identified as being BIRD OF PREY 2, a BBC serial from 1984. The actress involved in the scene has been identified as Joan Blackham.
7) The Bitch (Film/1979)
Unknown Actress. Full frontal nudity opening a door and saying to a man who is watching a movie "You Gonna Be Long, Josh" and he tells her to put some clothes on.
8) Unknown Programme (1980s/1990s)
Unknown woman in a 1980s/early 1990s TV programme. She is a blond haired woman in her late 20's/early 30's with a shoulder-length eighties puffy haircut. She is possibly at a party with her boyfriend/husband where she is propositioned by a young man with a beard sitting on the kitchen table. She is wearing a felt or suede dark Emerald Green dress. In the following scene she is in a bedroom with a man and she asks him to untie the criss-cross straps running up her back that hold the dress together - and then she peels the dress off and has no underwear underneath except for stockings - then she pulls back one side of the bedcovers of a double bed and gets in. Full nudity was seen. (Query submitted by Simon)
9) Sex 'n' Death (BBC2/1999)
During the programme there is a television gameshow hosted by Martin Clunes where he asks the audience to strip off and the quickest gets a cash prize. Does anyone know the name of the girl winner of this competition - she may be an actress or maybe she's a model.
