    "Waste Land", a 1970 episode of DIXON OF DOCK GREEN, oft repeated and heralded by the BBC as a new era for the series, as it's all on film (by Phil Meheux) and a bit grittier than usual, but it's really atypical as things soon swung back into the usual comfort zone, and among the bobbies (apart from the credited for a change Pat Gorman and Dennis Plenty):


    The P.C. here with Jack Warner and Nick Forbes is Patrick Milner


    And I think the one here is Vic Taylor.

    "Jig-Saw" is a familiar title for Jack Warner, but in this DIXON OF DOCK GREEN from 1971, we get a partial re-run of "Waste Land" from writer Eric Paice. This time round, Patrick Milner gets a screen credit along with Ronald Gough, plus:


    A handbag??? Vic Taylor gets his dirty dabs all over a vital piece of evidence, much to the chagrin of DIXON stalwart Sgt. Wills (Nicholas Donnelly)


    "Can I interest you in some postcards?" is NOT what Peter Byrne is saying to bowler-hatted Tommy Winward.

    Victor Maddern is also in this one, but sadly it's not the "Dick Green dock" episode.

    The aid of an "Eye Witness" is called upon in DIXON OF DOCK GREEN and we can see here:


    Mike Stevens as a police photographer, plus the usual Peter Byrne


    Sundry heavies, though the one in shades is still recognisible as Cy Town


    And the head heavies, played by Gordon Bilboe and Stephen Greif, with John Cannon on the right as another of the thugs.

    We get out of London for part of this episode (to Devon, I think) and Jack Warner has more to do than usual for this point in the life of the series; indeed he's behind the wheel of a gold Austin Maxi in a frantic car chase near the end!*

    There's a spooky moment in the car when the sound man or other crew member starts to emerge from the back seat before we cut away.


    * Well, a country car ride then.

    In The Frightened City (1961), it's all peace and harmony:


    And among those enjoy it in Arnold Diamond's Riviera Club are Philip Stewart at the bar, John Lynn walking across and Pat Hagan at the back


    But then big tough Jim Brady arrives and now they can be frightened as that's the peace and harmony over


    Still able to enjoy the sights as Alfred Marks' Taboo Club is Charlie Price on the right


    And here's the man himself down the gym with Robert Cawdron and Doug Robinson plus Jim Tyson trying to get his weight down? - don't drop that on Doug's feet, Jim!


    George Pastell is Sanchetti and his hapless waiter is inevitably Paddy Smith (called Mario here, mind you).

    Putting the frighteners on:


    A somewhat unlikely pose for Sean Connery, but there's his future Thunderball cohort Harold Sanderson enjoying his meal


    On his bike is Alf Mangan


    A Christmas party: there's Charlie Price again on the left, this time sporting a beard, plus Robert Cawdron sporting an undersized police helmet, Bill Cummings shaking it all about and Kenneth Griffith wisely about to sit down if he can get someone to hold his crutch


    It's not that clear, but keeping a lookout while David Davies' mob get up to some funny business is Maxwell Craig


    And about his usual business at the Tower of London is tramp Dido Plumb. Sean might be the frightened one now.

    Quite a few dolly girls in this film but I would hazard a guess that the blonde seated at the bar is Sheena Marshe.

    Pity she looking away from the camera but my guess the woman in pic 3 is either Yvonne Buckingham or Yvonne Romain, both glamorous well nourished brunettes of the 50s/60s.

    I don't think is Sheena or indeed either of the two Yvonnes, cully. They are all credited and Yvonne R hasn't arrived at the party scene yet. Yvonne B can be seen in the Taboo Club!

    It's off to the races in THE HUMAN JUNGLE to display "Fine Feathers" and on display here:


    Philip Gilbert is checking for some missing money watched by Miranda Connell, Sally Smith, Jeremy Burnham, Michael Johnson and others, including, right at the back and looking straight at us, Emil Stemmler


    The police arrive, with Peter Perkins as the hatted representative of the law


    I'm not so sure of this, but I think the hatted representative of the H.P. company may be Donald Oliver. Philip Gilbert finds the tables have turned (or at least are leaving the building).

    An airport encounter for Peter Byrne and Gregory de Polnay with Lee Montague in "Harry's Back", another filmed episode of DIXON OF DOCK GREEN (tx: 12.01.1974):


    The luggage porter at the back looks mightily like Hugh Elton. I think Hugh turns up earlier on too as a riverside bar waiter.

    I was amused by one of Peter Byrne's lines in this episode: "Let's get all those faces identified."

    It's time for The Anniversary (1967), Hammer's second fling with Bette Davis and a delicious black comedy about what nowadays would be called a (very) dysfunctional family. Among their number:


    James Cossins, properly attired - he isn't always - and just over his shoulder, one of his construction workers is Fred Woods


    Another worker on the left: Peter Avella. It's comforting to see Peter's still got his trademark fag in mouth.

    This scene was filmed on what was the Elstree backlot in 1967 and is now . . . Tescos.


    The Taggart family have dinner out and here is Bette being well attended to by waiter brothers Gerry Judge and Pat Judge. Also at table: Elaine Taylor, Christian Roberts, Jack Hedley and James Cossins. Sheila Hancock is in absentia. So is Mark McManus . . .
    One of the dancers in the background may be George Holdcroft, but it's too difficult to see. The extra previously thought to be Andy Alston is there, though


    Bette relishes cutting into her steak almost as much as she relishes cutting into her sons. In the left background, another waiter is Paddy Smith


    And when Gerry wheels out Bette's cake, yet another waiter by the side of the door is Michael Dempsey. So apart from Eden Fox and Joe ???, all our favourite waiters are there


    However, there's one dancer we can briefly make out, namely the young lad in the middle, David Seaforth.

    In the top shot behind James Cossins, in the light trousers, greenish shirt, cap & carrying a jacket is Frank Dowling.

    Thanks for that, Ken.

    Holiday on the Buses (1973) ain't no vacation for Eric Kent:


    Here he is getting soaked outside the employment exchange with Reg Varney. When we get back there at the end of the film, Eric's still there, albeit inside!

    3rd from right in 3 piece suit is Leslie Weekes and Garry Dean is the head poking up behind the dark haired lady.

    This extra in fact appears in Parts Two, Three and Four of the serial.
    Leslie Weekes is 3rd from right in 3 piece suit and Garry Dean is the face just behind the dark haired lady

    Gerald:
    I think the guy in the picture from the Frightened City (next to Charlie Price with the cigar) is Harry Van Engel (born 1931). He used to double Laurence Olivier, and did a thousand films from 1942 when he was a boy.
