When Governor Arthur Phillip arrived on our shores in 1788 he posted a photo of Botany Bay to Instagram and carried an iPhone, according to the BBC anyway.

Ahead of the premiere of the upcoming First Fleet drama, Banished, the network released promotional material that was a little ahead of its time.

In one of the photos, star David Wenham, who plays Phillip in the series which airs on Foxtel on Thursday, has a phone in his pocket … 59 years before Alexander Graham Bell got to work and centuries before Steve Jobs was the most unpopular man in Silicon Valley.

At least this now takes the limelight off Logie hopeful and ALP senator, Sam “Dasher” Dastyari who filmed his own re-enactments for the ABC mini-series The Killing Season which focuses on the tumultuous Rudd-Gillard-Rudd years.

Senator Dastyari was filmed talking on his iPhone 6 walking down Lonsdale Street in Melbourne as he recounted a phone call he received from a pollster in 2010. The 6 was released in 2014.

Banished is not the only British period drama to enjoy modern day comforts. Downton Abbey show bosses were left red-faced last year when a plastic water bottle was spotted in a promotional photo of actors Hugh Bonneville and Laura Carmichael who were dressed in character.
