    I think it would have been better if she had told him her married name a while ago…this would have avoided all this!

    I thought he looked about 15 in Rock and chips!

    Why do bbc cut their best ever programme to shreds?
    Class of 62 when they are drunk on the sofa where
    Is the mighty Quinn ? the song has been dubbed over
    You can’t hear anything

      They simply won’t pay the rights to certain songs being played during a scene or it may be times when it’s screen on Gold/BBC and they cut the more colourful language.

        That used to be the case but now (since 2009) for most songs they have a blanket agreement so have already paid, the cost of producing new DVD’s is too high they say that is why no new uncut DVD set has been released.

        So it still comes down to money as always.

    can anyone help with a question thats bugging me about this episode.

    when they are all sitting on Del’s sofa, discussing the schools football team photo – when Triggers mouth is dubbed, and he says ‘theres that italian player’

    well, I was wondering, when this episode was aired on BBC1 for the very 1st time, did Trigger originally say ‘pratt and not player’ – because you can clearly see, he says ‘thers that italian pratt’

    I was just curious if that line went out uncut, on the 1st ever time it was aired.

    I’ve only just noticed after all this time the excellent attention to detail John Sullivan paid to the diamond smuggling story line in this episode. When Del says he and Rodney went down to the newspaper offices to read the archived articles on Slater’s arrest he says it mentions Slater was tried and convicted for smuggling 78 diamonds. In ‘To Hull and Back’ when Slater counts the diamonds he says ’30, spot on’. He also says that that was the third time he’d done it. So that meant he should have been convicted for 90 diamonds, but if he hid 10 of them which we find out he did in ‘Class of 62’ that makes it 80 diamonds that he should have been convicted for. But, Sullivan trusting the audience to remember (or only just discover years later like myself), said it was 2 less because of the two Del replaced with his fake ‘cats eyes’ diamonds.
    Absolute Genius.

    Even if Roger Daltry wasn’t known in 62 Del could’ve still had his hair style. Boycie could simply be making that observation with hindsight, you plonker! Anyway, didn’t Daltrey have blonde curly hair?

    What did Slater mean when he said
    “so get out of that one, Perry.”

    Was he referring to an escape artist
    I’m sure it wasn’t our very own Perry

    How is Rodney 13 years younger than Del, Cos when he was born in Rock and Chips, Del looks more16 not 13. I also wondered why Rodney went to that reunion but I realised that when Del found out about the reunion, Del said to Rodney, “Why don’t you come along? It might cheer you up a bit!” :D

    • Griff says:

      Haha, there as been many reference to their age gap, and it is not convincing that Del Boy was supposed to be only 13 years older than Rodney. Haha.

      I’m thinking that Sir John made assumptions on their ages some time ago!

        Del was born in 1945, he couldn’t have been at School in 1962 as that would have made him 17. In Rock and Chips they were all kicked out of School in 1960.
