This page was added May 16, 2015. It includes videoclips of David Webb culled from his many performances on both the small screen and the silver one. Most of them are short, some very so, he was never an A List actor, and seldom the star, except on the stage. The clips are in chronological order by release or first air date except for the mini-series A Tale Of Two Cities; the second episode of this was screened the same day as Rain On The Roof, so I have broken with date order to keep these four together. All the clips here are included in his IMDb entry, the penultimate link at the bottom of this page. The soundtrack of the Van Der Valk episode has been muted by YouTube; for the record it is a piece of music called Eye Level.

Tunes Of Glory (August 1960, December 20, 1960 in the USA) - Webb appears in several scenes in this film, but as he has a non-speaking part I have included only a few minutes including credits. His name does not appear in the opening credits. This film saw the big screen debut of the actress Susannah York.
Man In The Moon (October 31, 1960) - I believe Webb is the technician fitting the space helmet on Kenneth More in this non-speaking part; Goodman is not so certain. He doesn’t even get a mention in the credits, but the film is listed on his CV.
