Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows more about the actress Nina Francis who played Miss Ainsworth in the early seventies?

Not much on her but here's her IMDb entry:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0290270/

There's probably a paragraph or two on her in one of the AYBS? books in the secy section. I can't find it in all this mess in my home office, so maybe someone else will chime in.

From the book "AYBS? 25 Years"

"Born in London,Nina never thought she was cut out for a full time televison carreer. She married and had children and decided to concentrate less on acting and more on producing. She compiled and presented her own poetry show for Tyne Tees and filmed numerous commercials. Today she concentrates on producing and freelance jounalism"

Thanks Minki for the word to Greg. I am tired of having to wear antiseptic disposable foot wear in the Staff Bog.

I can't take credit for the line though--that's prime Benny Hill there.

I've recently won an eBay auction for a program(me) of a play she was in, in 1976. Not the most recent info, but I think it might be of interest. I'll type it up in the near future.
