The ABC actually had quite extensive nightly news coverage of the tour of William and Kate.

According to Express, one of the segments of Part Two of the documentary (airing tonight in Britain) discusses a BBC documentary on Princess Diana that was set to air in August 2007, the tenth anniversary of her death, before being shelved indefinitely.

Diana: Her Story, Her Words was made by Kevin Sim, who purchased rights to the Settelen tapes on behalf of the BBC and used them in the program. Express writes that in tonight's episode, Sim now claims that "the BBC gave a misleading account of why the documentary was not broadcast, insisting it was because the programme did not add sufficiently to the story of her life. But Mr Sim says in a new documentary that the Corporation really axed it because it was worried about upsetting the monarchy."

The BBC shelved a £500,000 Diana documentary for fear of upsetting the Palace | Royal | News | Daily Express
The real reason Diana tapes were shelved: Director claims BBC axed 'dynamite' footage amid fears of upsetting monarchy - despite spending £500,000 on programme | Daily Mail Online

And Republic have come out saying that the BBC has to come clean about their relationship with the royals because of the claims/actions.

I think I've already seen that Diana doc on TV. It's also on YouTube.

If they're talking about the documentary that include the Settelen tapes- I'll post the video in the British Royal Family Video Thread.

It seems to be the same material that was in the NBC program.

Yeah, it's just stuff that we already knew. I'm not sure the royal family would be upset over it. I think members of the media and others very often forget that the royal family lived through those very tough times. They knew the pain Charles and Diana went through. Nothing is of surprise to them and I think they have gotten over that stuff.

Reinventing the Royals:
Succession
Episode 2 of 2
- 9pm Tonight UK Time-

"Written and presented by Steve Hewlett, the series is told principally through the first-hand testimony of those who were there: ex-royal advisors, editors, photographers, journalists, royal correspondents - and an enormously rich archive.

This episode looks at how the experience of growing up in the media spotlight has affected Princes William and Harry, and their attitudes to the press and media. Seismic events like the phone-hacking scandal - which started with the royal princes - and the impact of the Leveson Inquiry that followed have tipped the balance of power in their favour.

The relationship between the royal family and the BBC is also examined, the so-called 'Queengate' fiasco - where a trailer for a royal documentary was cut as if to show the Queen storming out of a photo session with the American photographer Annie Leibowitz. The programme recounts how, in the aftermath, another still-unseen documentary celebrating the life of Princess Diana was shelved by the corporation.

The programme also looks at the question of succession. For Prince Charles it is now not so much his private life as his personal views that are under the microscope, and their potential impact on his upcoming kingship is explored."

Again I* learnt nothing new about the BRF,

I think that the media have come out the worse for this - all needy and whiny. The programme has shone a light on how awful they have been.

I gotta say. While this is a little damageing on Charles in midst of people wondering how he will handle being non-political, the losers in this is the media. They seem so whiny. "Oh poor us we can't publish a long lens photo through a bush", "Poor us they didn't sit down for an interview", "They sat down with ANOTHER network for an interview", "They make us do this and that"... Yuck, sound like a bunch of cry-babies being sad that the store they're shopping in don't like it when they steal the candy.

I think it damages both sides. Interesting Intel on Charles! Not sure this family will survive long after the queen is gone.

The posts I have read elsewhere other than here seem to be very negative towards Charles as a result of this programme.


The BBC has had an agenda for years and they are cranking it up - destroy Charles.

Trust me, the British royal family will still be here and popular even after Elizabeth II.

I had the impression they were speaking about video tapes that were tapped by her audio coach. This is a documentary that was never aired and done by the BBC. I am pretty sure it is not the US documentary but another take on Diana's story using some of the content the US doc had.

I would like to see it.

I just viewed the second part of the documentary, and I think it pretty much shows that the Monarchy and media need each other and they just have to continue working out their cooperation's with each other. Privacy must be respected, but each will have to give one another some room to breathe.

I don't see William being angry with the media, as he was several years ago. I think he has relaxed a bit since getting married and becoming a father. I think he's simply protective of his family. He knows he and Catherine have to give a little, but in the end, the press have to do their part too. They'll get their story and pictures, but they can't abuse the royal couple. The media can't treat William and Catherine in the same manner like they did with Charles and Diana.

I don't view the media as in attacking Charles, but I think it's all down to their anxiety on the life of the British Monarchy after Elizabeth II. The media are so used to The Queen not voicing her views publically for over 60 years, they can't even imagine having a King voicing his. I don't believe Charles will do anything out of bounds of his role as Monarch, but he will be a more hands on and engaging King. I think with time, the media and public will grow used to King Charles III and his hands on approach. It will take some time.

It is because of Charles need to voice his opinion and William's reluctance to be king that makes me think they won't survive. Add to that their head banging with the media and it could all easily lead to their demise.

I tend to agree and I do think the royal family need the media as much if not more then the other way around
IMO
