Editor's Viewpoint: Focus on Belfast

Published 26/01/2010

Part of Belfast has been transformed into 1980s London as yet another film crew takes to the streets of the city.

The province has enjoyed success in recent years as a film location, bringing millions of pounds into the local economy and giving local acting and production talent valuable experience on the big stage.

The latest film is Killing Bono, based on the memoirs of a Dublin schoolboy who formed a group and dreamed of becoming a pop star. Sadly for him there was another boy in the same class who also formed a band.

That boy went on to become Bono - and his band U2.
