Recording Trivia

Some examples of the strange circumstances that arose due to some episodes being filmed out of
order include:

- Christopher Tranchell recording Paul's death scene in Greater Love and then a further episode as
Paul, alive and well in
Birth of a Hope, the season opener.

- Gigi Gatti appearing as Daniella throughout By Bread Alone, before subsequently filming her
arrival scene in
A Friend In Need.

- Anna Pitt's first scene as Agnes being her reunion with Charles and Jenny in Law of the Jungle.

- An injured Charles being shown to return to the Walter's farm in Bridgehead after his adventures
in rabies country, before
Mad Dog had even been filmed.

- Half of series three being filmed after Greg's fate had already gone before the cameras.

- Lorna Lewis, Gordon Salkilld and the children already filming daily life at Sloton Spencer in
The Last Laugh before the characters arrived there, supposedly for the first time, in Reunion.
