    We've been contacted by someone who has seen this clip who has told us that this town is not 'Split' in today's Croatia, but Sarajevo.

    Is anyone able to confirm this?

    It is, indeed, Sarajevo, Bosnia. Or more specifically, the old Turkish quarter known as 'Bascarsija'. The sequence (01:42-02:06) " a view across bay with palm trees" is Dubrovnik (town on Adriatic coast in today's Croatia). At the beginning of this sequence the walls of Dubrovnik's famous 'Old Town' can be seen on the right, while, as the camera moves left, the island of Lokrum comes into view. The last few seconds of the clip are again most probably one of the side streets of 'Bascarsija' in Sarajevo.

    I can confirm this, it's not Split. I live in Split, and visited Sarajevo and Dubrovnik many times, so you should correct it
