The scene where the chief inspector Max Vernon walks up to the siege you can clearly see a Ford Escort Police Vehicle (Reg YPA 629Y). Y reg cars didn't come out until 1982 but this siege was in April 1980. See more »
The film had lots of potential but in the end was not perfect. There were strong characters in the real life drama. In most cases the actors were excellent and very convincing. One of the important characters is the award winning BBC journalist Kate Adie. Unfortunately Abbie Cornish did not have a convincing accent and did not portray Adie in the correct standing. It was a chance to highlight Kate Adie's groundbreaking journalist work for British TV. Unfortunately Abbie Cornish's casting spoiled the film for me.
