The Bill

Louise Gold appeared a Ginny Sharman, in ĎAloneí, first broadcast on ITV at 8pm on either Friday 17 February 1995 or Friday 17 March 1995 (The date originally given in the Radio Times was Friday 17 February 1995, however it was also listed in exactly the same way in The Radio Times for 17 March 1995, and on the latter it was not given as being a repeat, and that date is often given in internet listings as the original airdate, so it seems likely that the 17 February date was cancelled for reasons unknown)
