Towering Alan - S1-E6

Corrected entry: Alan brings in a load of boxes for a large Bang & Olufson stereo system. There is no reason to suspect he is lying about this purchase as he has just got a TV contract and a hefty income. However, the new stereo seen later in his room is a tiny one made by Alba. So not only is the stereo the wrong make, you have to question how the writers missed the obvious problem caused by the huge boxes and then the small stereo.

David Mercier

Correction: Alan has not set up his Bang & Olufson system. He is leaving the hotel the next day. The Alba stereo has been there for a while. At the crematorium earlier in the episode, Alan was on the phone trying to track down some speakers for an Alba stereo.

Alan Partridge: You work in a petrol station Michael. It's not the Gulf War. Which ironically is like a large petrol station.

Trivia

Given that the BBC are very much against product placement in their shows, its shocking the amount of placement that goes on in Alan Partridge. Its really in your face stuff. Ginsters pasties, BP petrol, Lexus cars, Flavia coffee machines, Directors bitter, Twix and Yorkie bars. In every episode the above are mentioned on numerous occastions. Not that I give a hoot about product placement myself, but am so surprised at how blatently obvious it is and yet the BBC have always been so against it.
