You’ve Been Trumped (2011, PG, 90 minutes) film documents the construction of a luxury golf course on a beach in Balmedie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland by Real Estate Tycoon Donald Trump, and the subsequent struggles between the locals and Donald Trump and Scottish legal and governmental authorities. The film was briefly ranked as the highest rated British film of all time on the Internet Movie Database. The film used scenes from the movie Local Hero.
When it was announced that the documentary was to be given its British television premiere on BBC Two on 21 October 2012,[2] Trump’s lawyers contacted the corporation to demand that the film should not be shown, claiming that it is defamatory and misleading. The screening went ahead, the BBC defending the decision and pointing out that Trump had refused the opportunity to take part in the film.
