Queen Elizabeth was holding a nice Harris Hawk on Sunday in the Virgin Queen BBC1 - theoretically possible I suppose, but in 1559 I doubt they would have bothered with all the effort of bringing one back over the pond and training it up.
That's exactly the kind of historical cock-up I was thinking of. Brilliant!
Another of my favourites was the biblical epic where God/Moses/Abraham (sorry, can't think which!) was sitting on the throne with his hands cupped around the ends of the armrests - clearly showing fingers heavily stained with nicotine. Clang! :smoke:
Anybody remember the old Robin Hood TV prog in black and white? The opening sequence where the arrow flies at supersonic speed through the air, when slowed down, allegedly shows a telegraph pole and a woman in a mini skirt (presumably one of the camera crew).
What really gets me is when you see a painting or something of a bird feeder with Cardinals, Western Tanagers, Blue Tits and Black-Capped Chickadees....|=)|
Or when in a movie when you hear a Red-Tailed Hawk, when actually they're showing Bald Eagle! My sister is always telling me to stop because I'm always whispering these things to her during a movie!|=)|
