A TV Times listing from January 12th 1980.
Joint interview for 22-28 February 1975 issue of TVTimes
Pauline played the mistress of schoolteacher Derek Farr in forgotten series Nightingale's Boys (a Granada production):
Their co-stars in this last episode included future Sitcom legends John Challis (Only Fools and Horses) and Barbara Lott (Sorry!).
A TV Times listing from January 12th 1980.
Thanks, billy. Gillian Raine was the wife of Leonard Rossiter - Pauline Yates' husband in The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin.
TVTimes coverage for ITV's 'Play of the Week' - Dangerous Corner
Bad News, I'm afraid - it's lost. Broadcast Tuesday, 19th March 1963:
A dream partnership Two decades later, William Lucas was a guest in Pauline's sitcom Keep It in the Family.
Julie Christie, soon to be seen in Billy Liar, went on to win an Oscar for Darling,
in which Pauline had a minor role as Dirk Bogarde's betrayed wife (see first post).
Unfortunately, that episode of No Hiding Place is also "missing", as are the other J.B. Priestley plays mentioned in Sarah Snow's preview. And yet, the following year's season of Noel Coward plays - again produced by Granada - not only survive but are on DVD. Although I'm sad to be deprived of watching Dangerous Corner, my main concern at the moment is for the stars, who I presume are still alive. Pauline Yates is 83 and William Lucas 87. God willing, they are both in the best of health but you can't blame me for worrying when nothing is heard of them for years.
DVD UpdateYet more Good News regarding Donald Churchill's contributions to Armchair Theatre. The third volume includes his appearance in The Omega Mystery (1961), written by James Mitchell (creator of Callan and When the Boat Comes In). Donald was also in his Armchair Mystery Theatre story Flight from Treason. Among the other plays on Volume 3, by the way, is Now Let Him Go ... by J.B. Priestley.

Having read all your threads with interest I would like to thank you for your concern. I am very happy to confirm that yes, my mother Pauline Yates is now 83 and very much "still alive" though now a little frail.
I will try and post some articles that my sister and I have recently found (as soon as I can work out exactly how to do it!)
Many, many thanks for joining us here, Polly. Please send my love and best wishes to Pauline and your sister Jemma. I'm always worrying about people but especially those who were household names, or familiar faces, when I was very young. We're about the same age (I was born in 1965) so the aforementioned William Lucas, as a star of The Adventures of Black Beauty, would no doubt have been a part of your childhood as well.
Your mum and dad have often been in my thoughts since the late 1970s. Learning so much about their earlier work inspired me to start this thread. My way of coping with all those lost or elusive programmes is to hope they'll be available in another life. When I look at stills of forgotten TV shows that are long gone I compare them to those from theatre plays that were never filmed. For instance, I missed out on the original stage version of Look Back in Anger, with Kenneth Haigh, and never got the chance to see Julia Lockwood playing Heidi, on TV. No real difference as far as I'm concerned.
I very much look forward to seeing more of your articles. Where's the one you posted from? To upload them in a larger size, I recommend Photobucket, which I hope you'll find easy to use.
Hoping you'll keep in touch,

I echo everything that cornershop says, Polly, as I was also a big fan of your mother and also your sister who looks so like her on the screen!
Looking forward to seeing those articles!
Very best wishes again to Polly and family.
Daily Mirror interview, 10th March 1973
Another happy reminder of Pauline's career high with Harriet's Back in Town (still hidden away in the ITV archives):
I tried Bucketshop but not sure if it worked! Not sure if you can see the date on this but it was from The TV times 25th November to 1st December 1972
Welcome back, Polly. You've done everything right at Photobucket (not Bucketshop!) and all that's left to do when you try again is copy and paste the Image link so that an article will show up here.
After you've uploaded something, you should see 'IMG code' at the top right of the page. Click the link next to it and that will briefly go yellow - 'Copied'. Then go to the Reply box here and right click Paste. To see that you've done it correctly, Preview Post (bottom right), and if that's successful Submit Reply. Hopefully all will be well.
That TVTimes article isn't in my collection, which is mostly on disc, so I thank you again for posting something new to me.
Regards to Pauline and Jemma,
What a heart warming thread
Lovely stuff, lovely
I'm delighted to find this forum thread devoted to the elegant and charming Pauline Yates - I've always found her extremely attractive and a delight to watch. I used to avidly watch 'Keep It In The Family' for her deft performance and thought the lighthearted sparring between her and Robert Gillespie to be a joy to watch.
And I really would recommend to any Pauline fan to watch the 'Strange Report' episode, 'SWINDLE' - she looks absolutely stunning!
I remember tarot40 - the Denise Buckley fan. It's about time I returned to her thread but I'm more anxious to see Polly's return to this one! I've been meaning to post here again for a while but mislaying articles I found on the other computer and the frustration of not being able to identify Donald Churchill's co-star in my capture from Yesterday's Enemy have set me back. At least I've found improved versions of these pictures. Less noticeable watermarks than those at Mirrorpix:
The one of Donald is dated 20th September 1973. No other details except for the location - Watford!
Pauline was on location for The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin. This is dated 26th October 1978.
Best wishes to you and the family if you find this, Polly.
