    I now think Vi Kaley is Aggie, the hidden Beatrice Varley's drinking companion. The already-sighted Jack May and Hal Gordon are in the background

      Looks to me like a masked Rodney Cardiff as Sir William Fitzmaurice involved in one of the magnificent balls in The Bawdy Adventures of Tom Jones (1976):

      And Jack Dearlove as a ticking-off servant at the same event.

      • Mary Laura Wood seems shocked:

        But yes, at the auction behind the preciously-sighted John Smart and Pat Halpin is indeed Wallace Bosco.

        I don't think the police driver in a later scene is Arnold Schulkes, though.

        From INTERPOL CALLING "The Girl with the Grey Hair" and what is enough to make anyone's hair turn grey is that the end credits have been swapped around with the later episode "A Foreign Body". Also, IMDb seems to conflated the girl herself (Elisabeth Wilson) with the American actress Elizabeth Wilson.

            And as George Carney looks through his pub window, he and we can see villager Jack May.

            • The doorman assisting Britt Ekland and an unseen Scott Jacoby out of the taxi in the annoyingly mawkish Baxter! (1972) is George Hilsdon:

              The taxi driver is the credited John Caufield, but both he and Nicholas Smith, who plays another taxi driver, are both dubbed by David Lodge.

              • George Hilsdon is back (well, 14 years earlier) in DIAL 999

                Although he's working for bookie Jack Sinclair, he's not "The Big Fish" as he's called Joe. The punter on the right . . .

                . . . is later confirmed as Richard Nellor and the binoculars are on Colin McKenzie. Jane Hylton plays Ruth Harrison (not the extra, but the crook).

                • This episode is loaded with splendid character actors (Raymond Huntley, Sam Kydd, Griffith Jones, William Mervyn, John Salew, Jack Melford and Ralph Truman with a brief camero from Irene Handl), but most are not screen credited. IMDb has the cast credits all over the place plus mis-names Raymond's character. Not in the place at all also include:

                  Filling out his racing card is Pat Ryan, a police detective subsequently referred to as Harris.

                  The racing commentator heard in a scene with Griffith sounds very like Raymond Glendenning.

                  • In the scenes you have covered Gerald, i have in the Jockey's enclosure Reggie de Beer and John Ketteringham as Punters and Robert Vossler as a Trainer.
                    At the Harrison racing stables, one of the jockey's is definitely Peter Munt, one of the others may be Tony Jossa but not certain.
                    Good aural i'd for Raymond Glendenning!

                      When Leslie Phillips leaves work, as well as the previously-sighted Chris Adcock, Charles Stevenson heads off nose-first. Chris also appears as a French railway sidings worker later on

                      In the smart restaurant (with knocking shop upstairs - well, they are in France), Shirley Eton flirts with Alfred Marks, much to Leslie's annoyance. Behind them, Bob E. Raymond pays his compte.

                        Irene Handl phones in to the airport, but the stewardess doesn't see Pearl Walters in the background. When we return to the airport apparently hours later, Pearl's still there!

                        The Tour de France is on and the official with the tape is Norman Fisher, who does the two places at once trick as he's also a spectator watching this; Norman can also be seen earlier on in the scene where Bob Monkhouse nicks Harold Kasket's grub

                        Norman's in fact on the right here, but the drumming gendarme trying to calm down already-sighted Mayor Alexis Bobrinskoy appears to be John Barrard

                        And John's fellow cops, albeit of the moto variety, are Jack Silk and Jeff Silk. Once again, it's Jack who gets the lines, but he might be dubbed this time.

                              • When I last watched Lilli Marlene (1950), I must've fallen asleep - probably something to do with Hugh McDermott being the male lead - so here is another chorus of it with some of those missed:
