Cable TV cabinets

Just been watching the BBC 1 programme "Call the midwife" with the wife, how amazing that the green cable TV cabinets have been around since the 1950s, a very good shot of one of the stars of the show cycling past it.

Ive been banned from watching it now as I also spotted a 1980s BT Block Terminal on the wall when someone left the building, apparently " I am spoliing it for her"

Result there thenSmiley Wink

Re: Cable TV cabinets

Or how about a programme about a shoot-out in "Africa" (heavily based on the mid 00s Zimbabwe conflict) where you could clearly see pine trees and calor gas cylinders?

Re: Cable TV cabinets

I love looking for errors like that on tv, very surprising what can be spotted in the background.

Re: Cable TV cabinets

Great spot.

 

I heard a van drives past in the background of one of the battle scenes in Braveheart but I've never seen it. I did spot the green gas bottles in the charriot scene in Gladiator though!!

 

Cheers

Re: Cable TV cabinets

IMDB has loads of these continuity gaffes listed. Some you notice, others you don't.
