A Triumph Toledo with G reg number plates was shown in one shot. The Toledo was introduced in 1970; the correct model would have been the Triumph 1300. Also a G plate denotes a car registered between 1 August 1968 and 31 July 1969, whereas all the action in the film took place in during three weeks in June 1968.
Captions in the closing credits: "Two years later in May 1970 the Equal Pay Act became law. Similar legislation quickly followed in most industrial countries across the world. Ford Motor Company Limited went on to effect changes in its employment practices and is now used as an example of a good practice employer."
