Latvian Television to broadcast BBC's 'Latvian invasion' show

Latvian Television (LTV) has purchased broadcasting rights to the World War Three: Inside The War Room title by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), reported LSM's Latvian-language website Friday.

The title simulates a full-scale Russian invasion of Latvia and the use of nuclear weapons in the Baltic.

There's no broadcast date yet, however the press department of LTV said the rights to broadcast the movie have been purchased.

The film was widely discussed in Latvia, with the Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevičs describing the scenario as "rubbish" but said it had "many lessons" to teach.

Here's what Mike Collier, LSM's editor-in-chief, thought about the show after watching it.
