Game of moans as errant helicopter ruins TV shoot

Editor's Viewpoint

We are all aware that special effects can produce virtually anything those who make movies or television dramas want to portray.

The most watched series in television history Game Of Thrones - parts of which were filmed in Northern Ireland - made great use of CGI techniques to create all sorts of fantasy figures. But a flying object that  gatecrashed a climactic battle scene being filmed near Larne was something that no one expected. It was a helicopter, which would have caused real consternation to the people of Winterfell even though they were used to dragons swooping out of the sky. At least it can be edited out.
