The Honda ratio is definitely weird, but the others look fine to me.

Do we allow clothes films? :whistle:

Seems from imdb it was a 3 hour TV film, based on a real and mysterious episode in Northern Ireland - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoot-to-kill_policy_in_Northern_Ireland - which lead to a high level public inquiry led by John Stalker. But just as he was about to present his results, he was removed from the inquiry for alleged malpractice. The inquiry was completed by someone else, but its results were never made public. At the time the whole process seemed to stink of political manoeuvring and conspiracies to bury the results - whatever they were - well away from any public or legal/judicial scrutiny.

In terms of the film, it is very unlikely that it could have been made in Northern Ireland due to the tensions there, so would be made somewhere else. As Yorkshire Television were one of the production companies, it could well have been made in Yorkshire - a similar process to the NI-set but Yorkshire-filmed drama Harry's Game, also made by Yorkshire Television. Also every number plate I've checked in the film is fake, so very likely to be filmed a long way from NI.

It seems to be set in Northern Ireland, yes, but filmed elsewhere as DSL said.
