A very good series for accuracy are the early Heartbeat ones. Real fires in the grates, correct rings and dialling tones on the phones and timely technology and cars. I suppose the 60s were more recent when it was filmed and more people remembered what was around
My Dad used to comment when a song wasn't right for the period, some early 1970s ones managed to slip through.

He was good at noticing some transport errors, like a lorry with a Long Vehicle sign on the rear & some trains not being right for the area if correct timewise.
