Dad's Army

Broadcast to the Empire - S99-E1

Continuity mistake: When Mainwaring asks the engineer if he is through to the producer in London yet the squad are lined up from left to right - Fraser, Pike, Wilson, Mainwaring, Jones, Walker and Godfrey. Then the angle changes and the order is now Fraser, Jones, Pike, Mainwaring and Walker. Then another angle change and it's back to the first line up.

Don't Forget the Diver - S4-E2

Factual error: While Capt. Square is looking through his binoculars at what he thinks is Mainwaring's platoon marching with their rifles, a 1960's Bedford lorry drives past on the road behind them.
