A documentary titled Exposure - Gaddafi and the IRA, which aired on Monday night on ITV, has confused action from Bohemia Interactive's 2009 war game ArmA 2 with real footage linking Gaddafi to the IRA.

The shaky cam footage shows a helicopter being shot down with the words "IRA film 1988" displayed over the video. A voice over states: "With Gaddafi's heavy machine guns it was possible to shoot down a helicopter as the terrorists own footage of 1988 shows."

"This was what the security forces feared most," the voice over continued. "It may have been a lucky hit, but for the Army and crew once was enough. No one died in this attack."

Well, no one died in this attack because it happened on a computer, not in real life.

You'll find a short video highlighting the footage below, whilst the full documentary can be viewed on ITV Player, with the offending footage at around the 28 minute mark.

I'm waiting for the ITV documentary on the aliens that have been attacking New York, based on footage from Crysis 2.
