While Bert and Falani get stuck in down in Hamilton, Fred West (David de Lautour) and friends watch the events unfolding on a TV in the pub. The scenes in Hamilton were shot before the scene in the pub, so the material could be played on the pub TV rather than inserted digitally.
“It all helps sell it,” de Beus said. Some of the contemporary footage was degraded and defocused to help it match the archival material and playing it live in the scene gave light reflection off the TV screen.
