The Boat That Rocked

Corrected entry: During the guessing game, Simon says to "Think outside the box." This now-common expression didn't exist in 1966.

Correction: Not necessarily true. There's no specific date for the beginning of the phrase, but it has been in use in the media since the late '60s.


Corrected entry: The news/weather man announces that the marine offenses act was passed unanimously. But when the cabinet were shown voting on it, several of them didn't vote for it.


Correction: There's no way that John could actually know that several ministers failed to vote for it - all he has to go on is whatever press release the government sent out. If that said that the act passed unanimously, then it's not a mistake for John to repeat that.
