La baleine blanche

19 Jul


Documentary series, Floating school, 6 ep
Year: 1987
Year in film: 1980s
Country: France, Germany
Who in bibs: boy ~17 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no, partly TV recordings
Bib occurence: very low ?
Rating:  4/10 *
Rating: ****
Comment: At least one older teen boy in dark blue bibs. I recently found a short clip on one of my VHS tapes and made a screenshot, but forgot to save it, as I was busy and happy, having found one of my unknown movies. This is not on the same tape and I currently don’t have the time to check all my tapes again.

The pic shown is an older pic and maybe it’s the boy on the right wearing bibs. At least with a similar haircut, but maybe another, older boy, maybe from the team or a local boy. Definitely not the blonde boy on the left. First I thought, that it’s from “Phares d’ouest” (rating 6), but I have checked all episodes of that online.

I only have a very brief scene with the boy in bibs walking and standing (outside the ship) and either headshot, pics of the legs or from a distance. So it’s not worth much, posting a pic. He was accompanied by a younger boy kneeing on the ground but not wearing bibs.

Rating 3-4 for now for the bibs scenes, much higher for the series. Some nice scenes, similar to Phares d’ouest and Fleur de Lampaul – Jeunes marins reporters. The blonde boy also wearing purple shorts (but not shiny shorts). I assume very few bibs scenes.

I also found 2 more headshots of an Australian boy of an unknown movie on my shiny shorts blog. Can anybody help there?

Fatale Mutterliebe

19 Jul


TV drama, Veronica Ferres
Year: 1995
Year in film: 1990s
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Philipp ~7
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least ~8 or 9 yo Mitja-Daniel Krebs (“Kidnapping Mom & Dad“) as 7 yo but even younger looking Philipp in light blue shortalls.

From my rare movies list. (I still haven’t seen the complete movie).

Looks like a typical divorce drama. Young boy, long hair

so rating 3 for now only.


Bares für Rares (2017 Abendshow)

14 Jul


Antiques show
Year: 2017
Year in film: 2017
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: girl ~15 ?
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium
Rating:  5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: One teen girl in tight, medium blue bibs in yesterday’s special evening show (13. July 2017) 20.15h which was the 2nd special in 2017. She often has to adjust her left strap.

Pic 1 at 22 minutes. Pic 2 at ~55 minutes. At the beginning mainly headshots and behind others. Fully shown mainly at 55-60 minutes (ABBA item of Thomas Herrmanns).

Available on the ZDF mediathek.

In the first 1st 2017 special there was a man in baggy bibs as seller at the end.

In the regular, daily show (afternoon) there are very few kids and no or no notable bibs scenes. Maybe once or twice (girl and/or woman ?).

Update: Unknown #1

13 Jul


By checking my old PC and finding more pics of an unknown (different) movie on my sailor suit blog (please also take a look there), I came across some more pics of this one (I knew, I had). I upload them, in case that somebody might recognize movie or actors.

I still think, that’s a boy in bibs (pics 1+3, 4 on the right). Maybe a British (drama) movie, aired ~1989/1990 on Dutch TV. Mom is in Berlin (divorce plot?). Somehow the man looks German. Kids dressing like Mexicans using carpets. Who can help here?


Update: I also found my recording of the recent unknown movie/series. Maybe it’s Five Mile Creek. At least an adventure series, probably Australian. New pics on my other blog.


Amico mio

12 Jul


Hospital drama series. 14 ep in 2 seasons
Year: 1993-1998
Year in film: 1998 ?
Country: Italy, Germany
Who in bibs: girl ~13 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: very low ?
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least this older girl in long, light blue bibs in at least the end of episode 10 part 1 (s2e2a). IMDb listing season 2 as “Amico mio 2” (1998). I don’t know all episodes (series still running on Bibel TV) but I assume (very) few scenes. There are 6 movie length episodes in season 2 aired in 2 parts each. Maybe there are other supporting actors/actresses in season 1 as well?

Not sure about the name of the girl (Serena ? played by Eva Salvatori (and another actress)). Maybe the upcoming half sister of the orphaned boy Spillo? The girl is also shown from a distance but partially hidden.

Interesting series with some handsome kids (also see my bedroom blog, rating 6). Soon on my pigtails and shiny shorts blog.

For now for the brief scene rating 4 only. German title: Die Kinderklinik.

Mordkommission Königswinkel

11 Jul


Crime movie series
Year: 2017-
Year in film: 2010s
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Julia ~36, girl
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least a woman (Lavinia Wilson on right ?) and a girl, probably her film daughter in blue bibs. Pics from yesterday’s s1e1 Liebe bis über den Tod. Rural content.

I only saw the last 5 minutes. But I assume rather few other bibs scenes if any.

Rating 4-5 for now. No entry on IMDb, yet. So needs to be rechecked for names and other episodes later.

Family series. 8 ep
Year: 2012
Year in film: 2010s
Country: The Netherlands
Who in bibs: Renske ~12 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  4/10 *
Rating: ****
Comment: At least a girl, I think Bibianne Garretsen, around 12 yo in faded shortalls (one strap loose) and grey tights underneath. Black boots, I think out of leather. Pic from episode 8.

Great series. Also on my shiny shorts blog (currently rating 6 but probably at least 7, updated soon).

Unfortunately only 8 episodes and I missed the first 4 ep.

I don’t assume much shortalls scenes as the main plot is about the Soccer team (including some girls). Typcal, modern shortalls as shown in other (Dutch) series.

For the brief scenes, rating 4 for now only. Series much higher.

You Can’t Do That on Television – update 4

6 Jul


Thanks for these updates. I had problems, finding some episodes.

Season 1 (1979 with episode “Suing the Network”, s1e12) is either missing or combined under season 2? Often episodes of season 1 are untitled. Pic 1 should be from s2e12. Maybe it’s the same boy, I already had in update #2 and/or Jonathan from Whatever Turns You On (1979). Or probably it’s another blonde boy in there?

Pic 2 showing young Doug Ptolemy in s4e7 “Inequality Kids vs. adults”. I only found this very brief scene.

Episode Christmas I already had, “Jealousy” doesn’t work (all 3 sources, 2 got deleted). I think I have some pics on my old PC. “Pets” I forgot to check.

I also found some more good shiny shorts scenes, soon on my other blog.

Main entry, f/m, rating 7
