I agree wholeheartedly.

In press and tv we can see article about a new movie (document) about accident in Alma. It describes that this movie is made by M. AlFayed and people will see it in Cann Festival. Probably in this film are the last pictures of alive Diana after accident in Alma.

There is a short film about this:

Movie (documentary) about the events surrounding Diana's death at Cannes Film Festiva

I heard a radio segment about a film premiering at Cannes which investigates the events surrounding Diana's death in Paris. Does anyone know what this is about?

Photograph of Dying Princess Diana in Film Screening at Cannes Festival - FoxNews.com

If you google the picture of Diana dying you can actually see it. Not recommended for the squeamish and now that Russo has (there's that curiosity that killed the cat again!) she wishes she hasn't and would rather remember Diana as the beatiful woman she was.

Has anyone else heard that all of the cameras in the Paris tunnels were either turned off or inoperable? Apparently, the film makers used an excerpt from a Howard Stern interview where he discussed the accident with Dodi's father. Is that true? Was there no footage showing how the crash happened?

I remember something about the inquest about the cameras in Paris being routinely shut on and off. They aren't all on all the time.

That seems strange about street surveillance routinely shut off. I thought
it was that the surveillance cameras were not working the night of the accident.

There is no footage from the surveillance cameras. There have been many explanations given, from the very beginning (not working; turned off; other). That's why there's a mystery.

The ambulance took 40 minutes to arrive (and the second responders waited for it to arrive to try and do anything at all). Very first responder was a doctor who thought she wasn't that seriously injured and left when second responders (not the eventual ambulance) arrived. Seems there was a reluctance to do anything at all, for fear of doing it wrong. For years, I thought it was merely the French way of doing things, but after living in France a bit and reading more, it just seems perhaps everyone was overwhelmed by who they were dealing with - and did not respond the way they might have.

It's a mystery, still, and lots of unanswered questions. I will watch.

I've just reread Chapter 5 of the Paget Report, which is the chapter concerned with CCTV and other surveillance cameras. Most of the cameras were privately owned and were security cameras directed toward the front of buildings, not the streets. The camera at the Place De L'Alma would have been un-manned at the time of the accident, because the staff in the office left at 11:00 P.M.

I'm still surprised that there wasn't some road surveillance near the Ritz, anyway. Here, if a business has security cameras, they try to aim both ways (since getting a picture of how the bad guy left the premises can be very important - people can easily disguise themselves, but the make and model of a car is important).

Of course, it's hard to really get away with a car-based crime here in the islands - Paris is probably very different in how it views the effectiveness of cameras.

Mermaid 1962,

Thank you for this information. It appears that the surveillance cameras were used privately and not by the government. I suspect that today, it may be different because it seems every city has cameras mounted on every street corner.

It appears that Diana's death will be considered by conspiracy theorists to be suspect, just like JFK's assassination, the Twin Towers destruction and even the death of Osama Bin Laden.

I guess i dont understand why there would be street surveillance? why would a hotel want to watch the main road? i can understand watching the front and back doors which we have seen that footage.

Thank you Mermaid. I never read Paget Report. The report answered the security question of the surveillance. I wonder why the privately owned company did not have 24 hour security on the weekends? Statistically, that is when most accidents happen during the week.

I just looked at the photo. The statement of the physician who tended her at the site said there were only a couple drops of blood on her face. That is certainly NOT what the photo shows.

It will be a money-maker, tho. Nothing like a manipulated documentary to stir the puddin'.
--------------------------------------------
I've started reading the Paget Report. Very interesting. When I read that the "engagement" ring had been sent for re-sizing, an alarm went off. A ring like that can't be sized, as the stones go too far down the shanks. If it needed to be made to fit, a new one would have to be constructed, i.e. send it to Italy, take out the stones, make a new ring, reset the stones.

Are you talking about the photo that was released in the Italian tabloid magazine?
