Yeah but the filter does not make that adjustment yet so I don't think we should count Alan/J.W./Bell the same as Alan/J. W./Bell until it does.

In This post I pointed out how we should count based on based what the how the filter and rules would force the common name in certain conditions. But those are based on current filter/rule conditions. 

Although I agree with the consistency pointed out in the thread you pointed out I am not sure we should until there is a ruling or a filter changes.

This might be one where we should do a poll in the rules forum, and open a ticket to see if a rule.filter change could be made.

Getting another filter would be great. Anyway, since those poll results, that's how I've been handling this.

Or even just a ruling.  I am going to bump that thread just to see if there are more reactions.

Thanks for the link to the other discussion - some interesting thoughts there. Even so, may as well continue what was started. I have a suspicion that Alan J. W. Bell is the common name anyway, but time will tell.

Meanwhile, found three more:
Comedy Greats: Best of Spike Milligan - Alan J.W. Bell
Great Comedy Moments (2001) - Alan J. W. Bell
Lost for Words (1999) - Alan J W Bell

Giving myself a headache streaming lots of Last of the Summer Wine, but...

Last of the Summer Wine: Series 1 & 2 (1973) - invalid, not credited.
Last of the Summer Wine: Series 3 & 4 (1976) - invalid, not credited.

After more research I found Mr Bell did not start working on Last of the Summer Wine until 1981.

Last of the Summer Wine: Series 5 & 6 (1979) - Alan J. W. Bell
Last of the Summer Wine: Series 7 & 8 (1982) - Alan J.W. Bell
Last of the Summer Wine: Series 11 & 12 (1988) - Alan J W Bell

More to come.
