Excellent thread

I've always thought Mykola Pawluk was a weird name, appears on most of the shows I watch past and present! But Nina Nannar is a brilliant name.
Wow I was thinking of Mykola as well Ive seen his name at the end of programs for years ...hes come on hasnt he lol.Anyone know anything about him come to think it could be a her

Lainey
Same here, always wondered who he/she was, and would always look at the end credits of bbc comedies to see if Mykola would appear as 'videotape editor'!!

Mykola Pawluk is definitely a "he". Mykola is a Ukrainian form of Nicholas

Two children's TV presenters of the 70's
Brian Cant
Tony Bastable

Surnames close enough to swear words to produce a few giggles...

Has anyone mentioned Honeysuckle Weeks (Samantha from Foyle's War) yet?

Prunella Scales and Edward Woodward's names always trip me up. Ed-wood Wood-wood? Ed-wood wood-ward? Ed-ward Wood-ward? Pru-nella stale?

'Bear' Grylls real name is Rupert, sure I read that Bear was his nick name from school or something.

Fans of Crossroads may remember Jane Rossington and her oddly named daughter (IRL and on screen) Sorrel Dunger.

Sam Matterface always makes me laugh. I imagine him having loads of zits and always want to pass him the Clearasil.

I don't know how old he is, but the earliest credit I can find for him as an editor is Terry and June in 1979

Actually, it's Edward, and it was his sister who nicknamed him 'Bear'.

There's a production manager on Top Gear called Roger Houston

Wonder if he was born in 1969?

Riz Lateef (already been mentioned but still so funny)

Wasnt there some German player in Euro 96 called "Koontz"? sounded like the C word

Danny Shittu is probably the funniest especially when his name pops up on Match of the day lol
