Revealing mistake: When the notice of impending strike is posted in the town, the American spelling of "labor" is used. A Welsh signwriter would have spelt it "labour."

Continuity mistake: After Huw has been beaten by his teacher and has staggered home, his brothers find him lying in the street. They are angered and horrified by what has happened - one of them says "He cut you to the bone".

Huw Morgan: Indeed I will.
