Bomber's Moon - S1-E3

Factual error: Two cars in this episode set in 1964 are too new, Robert Stratton's Wolseley 1100 or 1300 is a mark two which didn't start production until 1967, and George Gently's Rover 3 litre is a 1966 mark 3 model fitted with rostyle wheels from the 1967 3.5 litre model.

Bomber's Moon - S1-E3

Factual error: John Bacchus is trying to sell his MGB sports car for £100, the car is less than a year old and would be worth much more than that - a new one would be about £850, and it wouldn't have lost 90% of its value in a year.

The Sweeney (1975)

Trivia: The blue Ford Cortina squad car seen in series 1 and 2 has the reg number NHK 296M. Sometimes it is fitted with a false number DLO 97M on the front (as has been noted as a mistake). The programme makers had been supplied with two cars from Ford, this Cortina and a Consul GT. The Cortina was fitted with this false plate to make the squad look like it had more cars, and only one number plate (the white front one) was made up to keep costs down, as the Sweeney had a small budget. In the series 3 episode "Pay Off" DLO 97M is on a white Cortina, in series three the same Triumph 2000 is seen with number plates TPA 931N and UUV 931N - again it is the same car with different number plates.
