The First Men in the Moon

In part 3 at 02:13 the alarm number is a reference to the computer error message from the landing of Apollo 11.
(Well you HAD to have the command module tracking radar on in case of landing abort!)
The error numbers look similar to the date display from the George Pal The Time Machine.

If the alarm number is an Apollo 11 reference, it proves precognition, because the movie was released in 1964.

But the error numbers probably were a "shout-out" to George Pal's 1960 version of The Time Machine, because screenwriter Nigel Kneale and director Nathan Juran both had that kind of a sense of humor.
