    "Masahary Homma" in text and tags should read Masaharu Homma.

    The location for the clip is currently given as "Japan", however this trial took place in Manila, Philippines.

    "listening to a verdict" - the verdict is delivered by Major General Leo Donovan.

    The clip's current date range of 1940-49 can be reduced - the verdict seen being given here was delivered on 11 February 1945.
