Documentary Uses Arma2 for Fake Footage

The Bohemia Interactive Forums point out an ITV Documentary which aired yesterday on British TV showing a helicopter attack labeled "IRA footage 1988" which is actually footage from Arma2, BIS's military shooter sequel. One of the ensuing user comments answers the documentary's statement that "no one was killed in this attack" by pointing out that this is because it was a videogame. There are also comments from Bohemia stating this was done without their permission, and is against the game's terms of service. The scene in question is shown in this YouTube video which also provides the original gameplay clip. Thanks digitalFatteh via joe.ie. Update: A post on Kotaku has a statement from ITV: "The events featured in Exposure: Gaddafi and the IRA were genuine but it would appear that during the editing process the correct clip of the 1988 incident was not selected and other footage was mistakenly included in the film by producers. This was an unfortunate case of human error for which we apologise." They say ITV claims to hold actual video of the attack, and plan on replacing the game footage in the documentary.
