I'm quite sure they are being advised on their public statements. But I do think its about time something is said.

What is this channel 4 thinking!!
Ratings, profit, money. Same as what all the other profit-making media organisations are thinking. This may be their last chance to make serious money from Diana the cash cow, and it's going to be a case of doing whatever it takes, I'm afraid.

Did it stop the photos from being published? No. They've already asked that these pictures not be published anywhere. Repeating themselves just gives the tabloid press something more to foam at the mouth over.

Better a dignified silence and the continuation of their plans for the concert that celebrates their mother's life (a good answer in itself) than yet another public statement that leads exactly nowhere.

Very true. I expect that the princes, and probably most of the royal family, are trying their best to ignore the photos entirely. Seniors members like the Prince of Wales, The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh might be in some consultation with senior staff advisors over the matter, but even so, they might be ignoring it where possible, at least insofar as to ignore the actual airing of the photos in a couple of days. I think ignoring it is the best course of action. Focusing on it only draws it more into their lives. They want to keep it out as much as possible. Thinking of it is absolutely horrendous. It's creepy to even imagine these photos being seen. I am going to ignore it. I don't want to draw any of that into my life.

Quite true but it still bothers me that anyone seems to care ...

Having read the write up in one of the TV programme guides, I have decided to watch or record the programme. It is pointless to shout and scream about how awful it is, when it hasn't yet been aired. The review makes it clear that it is more about the photographer's perceived roles, than about a blurred out photo.

Yes, it's okay to see by your own eyes and make your personal opinion about it. Although I think that the documentary could have been made without showing those particular photos. It's not a bad idea of doing a documantary on the photographers and all but IMO they didn't need to put pictures of a dying person, even if we don't see her face ...

True, apparently they have decided to blur the men and Diana. Although I do not have any problem with seeing corpses, I find it in bad taste for her son's.

Well, that's the only reason I protest the showing of those pictures - for her sons. When it gets right down to it, we've all seen worse images. Chances are, so have they-but it's different when it's your mother.

I think surviving family members should be the primary consideration against publishing pictures like these. They used to be-look how many years, for example, the JFK autopsy pictures were suppressed for the sake of his widow and children. It'd be nice, although certainly in vain, to hope the press would ever regain that bit of good taste.

If the press and most of all, the people had good taste, no more tabloïds would be published ...

I think what's being forgotten is that Diana is a business. They don't care about the real person, they care about the image they built up after she died because it's that image that sells. They could put Diana's image on a dog terd in a box and there'd be some nutter who would buy it. The media know that and so do the companies producting Di books and DVDs etc. But there's a problem - the brand becomes a little stale and with any product, you have to repackage and give a little more, which in this case are the images of death. In a way it's the last resort but it will sell. We won't see dead Di mugs or T-Shirts but we will see books and the like and yet again, the pennies come in. It's all about money kids.

However it has to be said, the 'discomfort' at seeing pictures or the actual corpse, gore and all, seems to be a western affliction. At least with a TV programme, everyone has the option not to watch particular sections or the entire programme.

What's really getting on my nerves is that there's going to be a whole publicity stuff before the broadcasting. You know how it goes : "Tonight exclusively on Channel 4, the photos of the dying princess of wales ..."

That isn't how they are 'selling' the programme funnily enough. It caught my interest because they say they are telling the paparazzis story, that they didn't arrive until after the police etc, which is a little different to my memories of what was said at the time. It also touches on ysbel's point, that they quickly turned the venom from the public onto the RF.

I think there's been a total mess around the inquest. First of all we blame paparazzi, the seconde later it's a conspiracy, the driver was drunk and so on. The work that should have been made the moment following the crash wasn't properly done. For example the accident occured at approximately midnight (0h24 to be precise) and the tunnel was reopened at 6 AM ... A little weird for one of the most famous women in the world.

Well known yes, but not necessarily more important to the police or ambulance men, to whom every person is important. They did all the investigation they considered vital at the time considering the majority of them probably realised it was just another drunk driver.

And wouldn't that be lovely? After all, you can't read what isn't published.
