Visible crew/equipment: Series 19, "Pandamonium": When Paul and Barry are trying to find the panda, Barry (dressed in a panda costume) thinks he is looking at his own reflection. You can see the camera and cameraman reflected in the mirrors, and you can also see people watching the scene being filmed.drwhoben
Visible crew/equipment: In the the episode "In-Console-Able" from series 19, in the kitchen when Paul accidentally puts custard and hundreds of thousands on a dinner, he puts the lid on it and when the camera zooms in you can see a cameraman with a camera recording and Barry getting ready for his take.drwhoben
Visible crew/equipment: After the robot hears the Chuckle Brothers have found another way out (when they put up the fake wall to hide themselves from the robot) look carefully at the robot's head as it walks close to the camera, you can quickly see the cameraman in a blue shirt before it disappears behind the wall.SirWilliamHeygate
Revealing mistake: In "Stop That World, Series 3, when Barry gets thrown of the See-Saw by the globe, and Barry lands in Paul's arms. The first shot is of a dummy and quickly switches to the second shot of Barry. It is obvious they used a dummy to make it look like Barry was falling into Paul's arm before switching them quickly.drwhoben
Visible crew/equipment: In "Parks And Wreck Reactions", Series 3, when the mower runs over the flowerbed flattening the flowers, Paul goes to fix them. Once he has finished and the camera zooms out, the boom mic can be seen at the top right hand side of the screen, just after it has zoomed out.drwhoben
Revealing mistake: In "Cycle Crazy, Series 3, Paul rides through the tunnel on his bike only to ride out again when a big truck comes the same way. It is obvious that the shot of Paul and the lorry are two separate shots, because after Paul comes back out, the trees don't follow the same pattern as the previous shot. This also happens between the shots where Paul rides into the tunnel.drwhoben
Visible crew/equipment: In "Wrong Number" from series 5, Paul and Barry are hiding from the spies and are dressed in Hawaiian clothes. As they are walking slowly away with the spy behind them, Paul's glasses, which are on his forehead, reflect the boom mic up until they leave the shot.drwhoben
Visible crew/equipment: In "Oil's Well That Ends Well" in series 19, when Barry runs outside to check on the oil, the scene moves to the left to the neighbour's house, and you can see the cameraman and camera reflection in the patio door window as it is pulled back.drwhoben
Visible crew/equipment: At the very beginning of "Breakfast Telly" (Series 1), while the brothers are waiting for their cue, a boom mic and pole can be seen at the top of the screen. (This can only be seen if viewed on a 4:3 tv or a computer screen, viewing it on a 16:9 zooms the picture in and it cannot be seen).drwhoben
