An example of aliasing is when stagecoach wheels on a film appear to be going backwards when the coach is actually travelling forwards. The camera samples the scene 24 times each second. This sampling rate is too slow for the speed of the spokes of the wheel. Instead of each frame showing the spokes a little bit further round, each spoke advances to just short of the original position of the spoke in front, giving the appearance of rotating backwards.
