This reminds of an amusing anecdote. Many years ago, when BBC productions were pretty cheap and nasty, the Beeb made a dramatisation of Treasure Island. The final episode ended with piles of treasure flowing from it's hiding place in Ben Gun's cave. Would you believe some eagle eyed viewer spotted a raffle ticket amongst the Pirate Gold and wrote in to complain.

Actually, the BBC is known as "Auntie". Coincidence? I think not...
