To Kill a Mocking Alan - S1-E5

Corrected entry: When Alan is running across the field at the end you can hear the sound of the camera man's feet on the mud .A little poor considering they probably could have edited it out.

Correction: The footsteps heard could have easily been Jed chasing Alan.

Alan Attraction - S1-E2

Corrected entry: Alan tells the Travel Tavern staff that he went to see E. L. O. at the Birmingham NEC in 1976. This can't be true because it wasn't built until 1978.

Correction: It opened in early 1976, and it would have been likely that Birmingham City Council would have used E.L.O. (who are Brummies themselves) to perform there to promote it.

A Room with an Alan - S1-E1

Corrected entry: At the end of the titles when Alan says 'The string-backs just give you a bit of extra purchase' he drives away and you can see the crew in the car windows.

Correction: The reason you can see "the crew" in the car windows is because he is telling to the camera man.

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.

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: At several points in this series, when there is a scene in the hotel lobby, keep an eye on the clock. Frequently, despite many minutes passing the clock doesn't move. This was probably done to avoid continuity errors arising from the time changing, but it actually creates one in itself.

David Mercier

Correction: No, it creates a scene where a hotel has a broken clock in the lobby.

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.
