My favourite was Miss Marple walking along a supposedly 1950s street and
in the background was a cottage with UPVC double glazing.

Yes well I think in one particular outside scene in one you could hear in
the background a modern siren low level and a jet plane as well. I suspect
that most people accept such things as a problem of trying to make old time
based shows.
Have you noticed how much smoking used to go on in old shows, except star
Trek of course.

if you look carefully at the Battle of Bosworth in Laurence Olivier's
production of Richard III, you can see an aircraft contrail.

Nowadays, one supposes one can CGI out a lot of the visual evidence. These
days of course since I only listen I notice the audio stuff.

Well, it would be dangerous to smoke in a spaceship wouldn't it?
Doesn't everybody know that?

On the other hand, as they could "beam" people from the spaceship to a
planet's surface, you'd think they could have devised a way to beam
the smoke-filled air away from the person with the cigarette to some
other part of the spaceship where it could be filtered, and perhaps
while they're at it beam the tar out of their lungs.

In fact, with a teleporter, why would you need a spaceship at all?

Limited range. (In SF, as in fantasy stories or fairy tales, you've got
to introduce arbitrary restrictions on the technology/magic for the
story to make any sense.) Anyway, spaceships are cool.

As usual then. Every time you break the laws of physics you have to
invent some new ones, so it becomes more complicated than real life.

I suppose you've heard that they only had teleporting in Star Trek to
save the money of filming spaceships (even shuttles) landing on the planets.

It's a bit like the greenies then. Now the correlation between
atmospheric CO2 and global temperatures has broken down they are
wriggling around trying to bend the facts to fit the hypothesis.

Sadly, I see the irrational, fact-ignoring, anti-green KKK club are
still around.

It hasn't.

https://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs...l-temperature/

"Sixteen of the 17 warmest years in the 136-year record all have
occurred since 2001"

they are
wriggling around trying to bend the facts to fit the hypothesis.


No they aren't, because global warming continues, the same as way as you
continue to be full of bigoted ****.

I really must find out how to set up plonk filters in Thunderbird!
