Default Re: Technology related anachronisms on TV and in films etc.

Wrong rail track, wrong radio…. but for something centuries further out-of-era, keep an eye out for modern stainless stirrups

I personally love scenes with wonderful old Cossor and Solartron scopes being used to control time machines, spaceships and general spatial discombobulators.

HP used to have a sales office not far from the studios in Hollywood. Occasionally big names would come over for a look around the bits of machinery on offer, but when the official orders came in, they said things like "Four of the ones with the green wiggly lines"
