On Monday night ITV aired a documentary called "Exposure - Gaddafi and the IRA" many people watched this including some of the staff over at PC Gamer. At one point in the documentary some footage that was called “IRA film 1988” shown ground troops firing at a helicopter and bringing it down.
One of the chaps at PC Gamer noticed that this footage looked a lot like ARMA 2.. and he was right… the footage was in fact a youtube clip that some kid had filmed with his camera phone of him playing a computer game.
ITV has now said “This was an unfortunate case of human error for which we apologise”
A video had been uploaded to youtube comparing the documentary and the game but this has now been removed
