Continuity and related errors in TV and film would provide a thread running to many hundreds of messages in a very short time...

I watched Silent Witness. Having not been there but seen photos I did wonder if the training ground used was actually The Hive at Barnet.


Also, tonight's edition of Michael Portillo's Great British Railway Journeys shows a football pitch early in the programme next to Lockwood Viaduct just before he got off at Honley Station. Not googled that yet.

There was a football pitch yesterday in the Bristol area.
The colours of the area behind the goal was yellow and green, which would not be City or Rovers. Any ideas for someone hosting a dinner party in Bristol area?
It looked non league anyway. (Come dine with me) Thanks. (He was older than 50 the man hosting, so not a player.)Tongue



I would laugh my head off if AFCW went down along with ColUwe and We**ham.

Surprised nobody has dragged this up to poke fun at last week's episode of Silent Witness.

Poke fun at the documentary style accuracy of "Silent Witness"?! Perish the thought.

I now take it for granted that most criminals are physically chased, apprehended and interviewed by young, photogenic forensic scientists. Surely we should be dispensing with the guys/gals in blue uniforms altogether and recruiting thousands more pathologists to patrol the streets. Tongue

Couldn't resist giving Casualty a look last night, after I saw that the plot involved "football hooligans". I think the last time I watched the programme was in the late 80s with a similar plotline. I thought the stereotypes were bad then. Have things improved? In a word, no.

No grounds shown. All the "action" was based around a punch up in a pub. At one point, one "fan" showed a flare to his mate in a pub. Of course, this being Casualty it was all going to end in tears. Can it get any worse? Apparently, it's going to be continued in this weeks Holby City.

I can't wait Smile

AutoTrader advert. I guessed it was also the stand at Clapton.


Also, over Christmas I watched that David Walliams programme called the The Boy who Wore a Dress. I guessed the ground used was Walton Casuals.

Portaloo missed out on showing Troon's and Irvine Vic's grounds, both of which are at the foot of the railway embankment he travelled along.

He missed out on my back garden too.

In Corrie Weatherfield Rovers(?) are a Conference team.


Ken Barlow's brother David played for Weatherfield County in the early 1960s. He was transferred to a London second division team for 1000.

He later returned to the Street and was player/manager of Weatherfield Athletic

Can find nothing online but Weatherfield County have sacked the manager McGilligan according to The Gazette.

In episode 2 of Stan Lee's Lucky Man, currently showing on Sky One, James Nesbitt's character goes greyhound racing. I instantly recognised the stadium as Central Park, the former home of Sittingbourne and Maidstone United.

I don't know how many of you have discovered the Talking Pictures TV channel - it has a wonderful archive of British films from the 30s to the 60s - mainly black and white B Feature film.

I've just been watching "The Great Game" from 1952 with plenty of shots of Brentford's Griffin Park. A story of a footballer being transferred to Burnville United from Monktown Rovers for 20,000 and getting 14 a week and a job in the ruthless chairman's factory.

Worth watching for the leer a young John Laurie gives to Diana Dors.

I loved the ending when the ousted chairman considers his next sporting project for making money: "Cricket! Celebrity matches, playing under floodlights! Yes. Get me the MCC!"

I watched the film 'The Great Game ' last week with some great views of Brentford's ground when it looked fairly packed during a game & empty when they were training.


There was an advert recently, no idea what for but you could see a bit of cover & it had Brackley Town on it.


Not football but also on Talking Pictures recently I watched the 1949 film called 'Third Time Lucky.' Early on shots outside of Kingsland Stadium which I googled & don't seem to exist but later on they go inside & you see some views of Catford dog stadium.

I recently watched an episode of Yes Minister (series 3 episode 7 The Middle-Class Rip-Off) which begins with scenes from a game, which is supposed to be in the Midlands. There are shots of one stand so I'm wondering if anyone can recognise where it was filmed. The episode dates back to 1982.

The link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5hsJCF7Va4 and the football ground scene starts immediately after the opening title sequence.



The feeling of utter devastation when you pick up your mug and realise you already finished your tea.

Could be Fulham v Oxford United from 80/1 which was 4-0 to Oxford. Not 81/2 as that was an evening game.
