Sex and Violence - S1-E1

Factual error: When the allies are testing their joke on the private in the field, just before he starts laughing at it, a bright red car drives past behind him. You can see it in a break in the trees. This sketch is set in WW2, and the car is obviously not from that era.

The Private Ear - S3-E9

Factual error: About 1/3 through the show, Greg has to talk to Marcia and asks Peter to leave. On the way out Peter stops to start recording on the tape recorder. He only pushes the play button. He would have had to push the red record and play button to record their conversation.
