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

Loads of good, period stuff on Mrs Wilson but apart from the Bush mentioned above, their home slide projector seems to be a very posh, professional, 1970s, Kodak Carosel which would be more at home in a lecture theatre.

OK, it makes a wonderfully evocative noise as the slides are changed, but surely an old Aldis with the lovely crinkly paint finish and its "primitive" look would have been more photogenic and more realistic for a middle class family living in a fairly modest thirties semi.

And the street lights and the odd house with UPVC double glazing stick out if to my eyes, but I suppose that's unavoidable really these days.

Nick.
