    Can anyone explain how much is added, and how different the theatrical release is from the television broadcast?

    He is also remarkably ego free and remembers your name, even after a brief meeting. I think he deserves a bloody knighthood, even if I don't believe in such gongs.

    In Jon's case, it's persistence :-)

  • Myles Thomas,

    I’ve been working with the film’s other producer, Kay Ellmers who says there’s some big revelations not in the TV version. Probably it's the latest news about killing two Afghan security guards and compensating their families.

    Getting back to this MWD...er...WMDs business. Coleman now says that some people are "researching" WMDs rather than WMDs being here.

    What TF does that mean. Does it mean my googling how a dirty nukey bomb works? Does it mean finding out how a fertiliser bomb works? Does it mean getting our biggest company spreading Botulism around the world?

    Fonterror certainly spent enough time "researching" to find the issue.

    It's nearly twice as long, and most of the additional material was shot in Afghanistan. It makes it clear why both the directors have been raving about Jacob Bryant's cinematography -- to get a film looking that good in such difficult circumstances is quite an achievement. I'm told the way he related to the locals was also very impressive.
