Factual error: When the factory comes to a stand still during the strike the cars on the production line are Ford Cortina mark 1s, which went out of production in 1966, two years before this film is set.

Factual error: Desmond Decker's record "the Israelite's" is heard on the radio. This record was issued in 1969, the year after this film is set.

Factual error: A triumph Toledo is parked outside the hotel - these cars did not start production until 1970, two years after this film is set.

Continuity mistake: After Rita and Eddie's fridge is repossessed they are arguing outside their flat. On the wall outside their neighbours' flat there is a wheeled trolley or pushchair hanging on the wall. This disappears and then reappears several times during this sequence of the film.

Barbara Castle: I am what is known as a fiery redhead. Now, I hate to make this a matter of appearance and go all womanly on you, but there you have it. And me standing up like this is in fact just that redheaded fieriness leaping to the fore. Credence? I will give credence to their cause. My god! Their cause already has credence. It is equal pay. Equal pay is common justice, and if you two weren't such a pair of egotistical, chauvinistic, bigoted dunderheads, you would realise that. Oh, my office is run by incompetents and I am sick of being patronised, spoken down to, and generally treated as if I was the May Queen. Set up the meeting!
