The cast and crew were based at the UN camp at Plesou and were protected by a Pakistani UN Special Forces troop during filming, which took place during the Serb-Croat war and was filmed in the actual location of the orphanage at Lipik. The orphanage was bombed days after filming finished and many of the children featured were killed and the building destroyed. The BBC felt that it would be "politically inappropriate" to mention this fact over the titles at the end of the programme when it was broadcast. See more
