    Ditto. I would love to see him as one of the "regulars" on the Sighted thread.

    Well it hasn't I also requested this at the threads of Fred Wood and Victor Harrington (no relation).

    My latest sighting of Aidan was just a few hours ago, as one of the crew in a YouTube upload of Some Girls Do (1969):


    The also uncredited Test Pilots behind him are future Doomwatch actor John Paul (left) and Philip Gilbert.

    cornershop, in my notes for Some Girls Do, I have Frank Gatliff down as an uncredited observer on the plane.

    That is a brilliant spot, Gerald. I've just had another look at the scene (around 1hr 19 mins) and can tell it's Frank, even though his face isn't fully seen. How on earth did he get that part? He's even less noticeable than Aidan Harrington! I suppose you'll already know that the uncredited Peter Brace is quite prominent in this film but who is his fellow henchman?

    I also found Hummies Extra No. 3 and Totti Truman-Taylor. In the latter's scene, at a cookery class, the man standing next to her is referred to as "Wing Commander" by Robert Morley. Any idea who he is, or the camp young man who looks like presenter Stephen Mulhern? Are they listed in your famous 'Notes' by any chance?

    Frank Gatliff, who was equally good in comedy as well as dramatic roles, made another uncredited appearance on DVD the other night, in the Gideon's Way episode The Wall. He had a couple of scenes as a Desk Sergeant. I added this to the IMDb some time ago.

    I'm fairly confident that's Aidan behind George Baker and Robert Vaughn in The Protectors - Your Witness (1973):



    Just about visible is barman Gordon Sterne. Sorry about the blurred hand but it's the right choice for this group shot.

    Not a good screencap, I know, but here is Aidan as a professor, along with Duncan Macrae, ???, Miles Malleson, Mark Dignam and John Sharp in A Jolly Bad Fellow (1963). Would there was a better DVD of this film available!

    That is indeed Duncan Macrae, Dave. My copy is recorded off-air in 1996 and it's high time I watched it again!

    Oh, I know it's Duncan; I put the ??? to indicate I can't tell who the fellow above the lamp is! I hope your recording is better than the awful mess the DVD turned out to be. Even the title card is missing!

    Here is the scene from my copy:

    But I still don't know who ??? is!! However:


    Also in the scene between Alan Wheatley and Mervyn Johns is Vic Chapman

    And just to fill in the missing gap:


    The title card!

    Thanks very much for the shots form A Jolly Bad Fellow! Embarrassed I didn't recognize Vic Chapman, though. Guess I was thrown off because he wasn't playing a barman or waiter this time

    Thanks to the equally helpful wearysloth for identifying that 'Henchman'. My apologies to Scott for not posting these images weeks ago. Your attachments didn't 'load' successfully on the other computer I've been using but they're fine with this one.

    Aidan Harrington in 'The Blackheath Poisonings' (1992)

    I can't describe the scene as I haven't seen the film but do know he is with Reg Thomason:



    The young Extra behind them, without a name so far, appears in all three of these screencaps.


    With the unfamiliar Mickey Clarke (I do, of course, know The Rubettes bass player Mick Clarke):




    Lastly, a close-up of our subject with the mysterious Paul Barton, left (is that correct, Scott?):

    You are correct cornershop. The guy in #2 back of Micky Clarke is John Roberts. I still don't know the young guy's name, but some of the people I've shown it to remember him.
