Visible crew/equipment: When the "weak" soldier finally breaks down and walks to and fro across his cell, there are lights visible in the ceiling.

Visible crew/equipment: As King is returning from his medical inspection to the line up: you can see on the ground in front of the soldiers a mat, possibly for the camera dolly to roll on. In the next shot, from a different angle, it has been removed.

Visible crew/equipment: When they are being taken for their first run on the hill by Williams the camera is positioned on top of the hill filming them 'doubling' round the bottom of the hill, as this is being shown you can briefly see the shadow of the camera crew on top of the hill.

Visible crew/equipment: Near the beginning of the film the RSM tours the prison, walking toward the camera as it is pulled backwards. You can see tracks in the sand from the dolly that supports the camera.

Jock McGrath: You're a clever bag of tricks, you are, Roberts. Not inside glasshouse half an hour and you use your bloody influence to get us a ride on the hill. Oh I bet, there's one Saturday night booze up your father's always regretted.



When they are all lined up for their medical inspection at the beginning of the film, the sun is coming up behind the hut casting a shadow in the front. When the Sargeant Major is then shown shouting from the hut, "I want this one (Bartlet) scrubbed with a yard broom." You can now see by the shadows that the sun is shinning directly at the hut. This would be impossible as there is only a few seconds between shots for this change to happen.
