Not sure off the top of my head. Bear in mind, that in the early days of Doctor Who, they filmed 50 weeks a year.
Hearing a radio announcement of the winner number of the Argentinian Sweepstakes, Gilligan realizes that he holds a ticket with the same number. His newfound wealth wins him membership into the Howells' island "Country Club". He buys memberships for the others, until he loses the ticket. Eventually, the Howells realize that the ticket is two years old, and thus worthless, but they elect to say nothing.
Mr. Howell has a dream sequence in which he is a 49er who strikes gold, but loses the deed to his claim. In the dream, the Professor is the clerk at the claims office, Gilligan is the local Marshal, Ginger is a saloon owner, Mary-Ann is a local Rancher's daughter, and the Skipper is a card sharp.
Back Story: Gilligan bought a ticket in the Argentinian Sweepstakes two years before.
Taking It Seriously: This time the radio station is annouinced as "KDKA News in Pittsburgh". It occurred to me to look these up, and, of course, KDKA is a long-time CBS affiliate, and WTOP (mentioned in "The Little Dictator") was affiliated with CBS for many years, so, doubtless, the station the castaways are listening to is the local CBS affiliate - as, of course, they would be.
Gilligan Spoils A Rescue: No.
Jeff of Earth-J said:The Baron said:Coming up, I will be starting in on the second season of the show, and the first color season.
By today's standards, that was a long first season! How many episodes was that?
Taking It Seriously: Shouldn't the Professor have noticed that - apart from his measuring stick - there didn't seem to be any other signs that the island was sinking? I mean, if the island was sinking - and sinking fast enough that he expected it to be completely underwater in five or six days - then surely the waterline should've been noticeably closer to various objects on land. Surely there should've been drastic differences along the shorelines.
