Tongue in cheek? But no smiley, so I'll assume not ...

Many things would give away the era. Styles of dress, styles of
manufactured items such as cars, interior decor, etc, etc, not to
mention 4:3 aspect ratio.

The presence of the sepia tint.


That comes as standard with some 'vision engineers'!

Film scratch effects and jumpy motion are pointless in any definition.

Perhaps the programme makers could include a caption saying when and
where.

There have been ways of portraying the past since long before there
was obsolete technology to imitate.

If film and 405 line transmissions were as bad as now imagined by the spotty interns
doing these things, neither would ever have caught on and we wouldn't have either
