Auf Wiedersehen, Pet

Season 3 generally

Trivia: In 2000 (about 15 years after the programme ended), when Tim Healy, Kevin Whately and Jimmy Nail were performing a few sketches (written by Ian La Frenais and Dick Clement, the show's original writers) of "Auf Wiedersehen, Pet", during the first 'Sunday For Sammy' charity concert (staged by Tim Healy and Jimmy Nail, to commemorate the life and work of actor Sammy Johnson, who died suddenly in 1998), Franc Roddam, the show's creator, decided to revive the show for Season 3. Allan McKeown, who was the executive producer of Series 1 and 2, was against the idea and never signed on.

An Inspector Calls - S3-E6

Trivia: Many people believed that, after watching the third series, the Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge had really been pulled down. So many, in fact, that Middlesborough Council were inundated with telephone calls, from people worried that the bridge had gone. To reassure that public that the Bridge was still there, a caption reading "The Transporter Bridge is Still in Middlesbrough" was added to the closing titles of the last episode of series 3. The deconstruction of the Transporter Bridge in Middlesborough (and its rebuilding in Arizona) was, of course, all done by computer generated effects (CGI).

Private Lives - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Neville is telling Dennis he should find a woman, Dennis is getting dressed up in his suit to meet Dagmar. After Neville has finished talking, Dennis leaves the hut without a suitcase. But when he arrives at the hotel with Dagmar he is seen putting his case on the bed(Dagmar has one as well). It is clear that he has come straight from the hut, as he is telling Dagmar what Neville had told him before he left.
