    It isn't just 1 clip though.

    The clip of rioting that was supposed to be from earlier this year was about 10 years old.

    As for Sean O'Callaghan. He is a Walter Mitty with mental health issues who was interviewed by John McCririck on Channel 4 Racing last year as he said he knew where Shergar was buried. He is a complete BS artist.

    The complete thing was just to try and get the British public onside whilst the forces are away bombing yet another country.

    Please don't degrade proper documentaries with that.
    That Libya supplied the IRA is no secret and had been known for ages. Tis hardly on the pulse reporting.

    Anyways, this has sod all to do with the topic.

    Oh, funny mistake though. Two marketing coups for BIS in a short space of time.

    He didn't work on a nightly news bulletin programmes - he worked on an investigative 'newsmagazine' show like this one, as well as various weekly entertainment programmes (editing interviews and pre-recorded performances). No matter what the production was - it was always a rolling contract as a video editor.

    I've never said this to anyone on a forum before, but in this instance I can assert with complete confidence: You are a shill.

    Whether it was deliberate or simply a goof made by a researcher, it is still extremely bad form.

    If ITV actually hope to "crystalize public opinion" with their blatant propaganda pieces, then they might want exhibit a degree of professionalism, as well as avoid infringing on a company's intellectual property.

    Very true, the French and Irish governments intercepted several shipments of weapons from Libya. On 1 November 1987 The MV Eksund vessel was found to contain 120 tonnes of Libyan arms, including HMGs, 36 RPGs, 1000 detonators, 20 SAMs, Semtex and 1,000,000 rounds of ammunition. Some of the IRA SAMS were later sold to ETA to assassinate Spanish politicians but the missiles were stored incorrectly and did not work when fired.

    Back on topic - I have emailed ITV a complaint and demanded a statement. I will post if I get anything back.

    If you want to see the IRA using Libyan weapons - the real shoot down footage is here:

    The confusion apparently happened because someone recreated the actual event in the game based off of an actual IRA video of the event, and uploaded it to Youtube here. A costly and embarrassing mix-up.

    This is ingame footage. Gameplay, not a cutscene. The "player" (camera viewpoint) is only watching rather than participating to stay as close to the original video, but it is all live-action real-time processing (that also means that it will never quite play out the same way every time, so it might have taken a few attempts to get the game footage to match the IRA video).
