I don't know, I'm thinking they would make more money for her charities if it toured the major cities, which would be a big event. The Exhibition would get a great deal of publicity and I think the people would flock to these events.

I think the Jacqueline Kennedy Exhibition did very well in the big US cities.

Good grief, she has been dead for more than 15 years and they are still dragging her bits and pieces across middle America. I am surprised they are not selling package trips to Althrop "Come sleep in Dianas childhood bedroom, only 2000 pounds a night ; view the island where she is buried for only 1500 extra". Let the poor woman rest in peace.

The Diana exhibit is at West Edmonton Mall right now. Looks amazing, can't wait to check it out. I think it will do well.

The CCTV of China (equivalent to BBC of Uk) made a series of TV documentaries about some famous people from all fields of UK, to promote the 2012 London Olympic.

One of the people they chose was Diana. The title of the documentary was "Fragile, but Great", and it was mainly about Diana's charity work.

There were an interview of Earl Spencer, a tour of Althorp and Diana's resting place in it. The documentary was done in Chinese, but the interview with Earl Spencer was still in English.

I do think a documentary should be made on Althorp. I think there's a great deal of history behind the estate.

IMO, if there was no connection to Diana, then this House doesn't really rate a mention. I have a number of friends in the US and I have never listed this as a must visit place. Outside of London, I would say Windsor (history across the ages + royal factor); Blenheim - architectural masterpiece; Chatsworth (home of the Dukes of DEvonshire) for the grandeur and scale of English nobility and for the rugged coastal view - Alnwick the seat of the Dukes of Northumberland.

There are probably a 100 houses like Althorp so it isn't outstanding.

I think Althorp rates a documentary. Yes, there are many homes like it, but perhaps this just means there should be many documentaries.

Here is a very short clip of Tim Wonnacott there which I saw in an episode of Bargain Hunt. Tim Wonnacott of BBC's Bargain Hunt visits Althorp House I don't know whether this has been posted earlier in the thread, and it's a very long thread so forgive me if I don't check through it.

The home has an interesting history, and is full of interesting and significant paintings and items. I also saw Fiona Bruce's visit for Antiques Roadshow, but I can't find a video of that.

I still think the Exhibition should've hit the major US cities; New York, Washington, Chicago and Los Angeles.

Yes, I've seen it. It was about time a documentary was made about the estate.

I watched that, and I really enjoyed it. Though I did have a question about something after I watched that and some documentaries on the Downton Abbey house. How is it Earl Spencer was able to re do the whole house (according to him ) but it is very hard for The Carnarvons and others to fix up their homes? For example I think there are still quite a few rooms and even the roof needs to be fixed on Highclere Castle. Though I don't know when the documentary I am thinking of was done so it could have been fixed up by now.
