They used another location. Neville looks much older, Oz's black eye isn't black enough and Wayne's hair's all wrong. Barry isn't even wearing the yellow shirt he should be. They obviously filmed it because Barry gets them together so portrayed him as someone who enjoyed his time in the hut all of a sudden. It doesn't work or fit really. They should have just portrayed it so that he started realising how much the bond between the lads meant to him after they'd split up. Would have made more sense. He even says it himself "You don't know what you've got 'till it's gone".
I have only just rejoined the forum as my old account was with my old e-mail address. I haven't been on the forum for a few years and I saw your post this week about the photo scene outside the hut,and you are right about it being another location. I mentioned this on YouTube a few years ago and someone said they filmed the scene outside one of the Central studio buildings in Nottingham, they were having building work at the studio and this accounts for the crane and identical hut. The lorry behind the German worker blocks to road to the studios.
You made a good point about Neville looking much older and Wayne's hair being wrong, Wayne is also wearing sunglasses that I don't remember him wearing in Series 1, I didn't think about Barry's shirt, but it was mentioned on YouTube that Barry looks older and heavier and Dennis's hairline is thinner. Something I also spotted was Bomber's clothes appear different to anything he wore in Series 1 and he's also wearing a hard hat, I never saw him or any of the other English brickies wearing one before.
