This Only Fools and Horses Robin Flies At Dawn Gulf War Special was filmed and broadcast in 1990 for British Troops serving in the Gulf. The actors and crew gave up their time to film the special at RAF Strike Command, High Wycombe. The special was filmed in one day on location.
Only Fools and Horses is my all time favourite BBC Comedy, but just like any other TV show, mistakes sometimes slip in during production. Personally I think these mistakes add to the shows personality.
In The Sky’s The Limit, early into the episode, Marlene and Boycie are having a conversation in their garden next to their satellite dish. Halfway during the conversation Marlene turns Tyler’s pram around to face Boycie. The handles of the pram are on the right hand of the screen, nearest to Boycie.
During their conversation as the shot switches back and fore between Marlene and Boycie, the pram flips 180 degrees and back again. Screenshots below but look out for it in the episode.

Del first meets Arnie at The One Eleven Club. The exterior and car park shots for The One Eleven Club were filmed at Arnos Manor Hotel, Bath Road, Bristol.
The Restaurant where Arnie faked his Heart attacked was filmed in Ealing. The building used for filming is still recognisable today but it is no longer a restaurant, it is now the office of London Host Families Ltd. The door has switched sides but even the windows are the same.
