Longitude is a tv drama series made in 2000. It is a tv series based on a book from Dava Sobel.

Longitude presents the story of Harrison's efforts to develop the marine chronometer and thereby win the Longitude prize in the 18th century. This is interwoven with the story of Gould, a retired naval officer, who is restoring Harrison's four chronometers and popularises his achievements in the early twentieth century.(From wikipedia)

Lucy Akhurst is playing Nurse Grace Ingham in Longitude. She only appears towards the end, and is the Nurse in the Mental Hospital that Jeremy Irons ends up in after he has a nervous breakdown. This was set at the outbreak of World War 2, so the uniform is typical of those worn by civilian nurses of the period.
