Watched the programme. Nothing majorly scandalous - just a rehash of old rumours with a few grainy pics thrown in. Clearly the fuss was fabricated by Channel 4 to attract viewers.

So what is the exact schedule of events for the 10th year memorial? There has been no press about this int the US. Will it be televised internationally do we know?

I'll be surprised if it isn't.

Might be although French Televison didn't talk once about this concert. In France we only have 5 free channels so I doubt I'll be able to see it ...

I finally managed to watch the Ch4 programme this morning and the only reason you knew it was Diana, was because you were told it was Diana. The parts of the photo's that had not been blocked out, were clear.

On the whole the photographers were puzzled by D & D's behavior that evening. They said that the entire holiday D&D had been happy to pose and now they were hiding. They commented on the fact that Henri Paul kept coming out of the Ritz that evening to tell them the couple would be leaving at such and such a time and then 10 minutes later coming out again - they said, for head of security, he was less than discreet.

What did shock me was the jubilation exibited by Agency managers and the Editors of the Sun & News of the World. They were all excited and celebrating when they were told that there had been an accident - that Dodi and the driver were dead and the photographers had pictures of an injured Diana.

They were wired some of the pictures and 'they were sensational, they showed Diana with a trickle of blood on her forehead and some bruising, we had to have them at all costs!' When the news came through that she might have died, they were all hoping that she would hang on, not for love of the woman, but because the pictures could still be used as long as she was alive!
They complained that they had this great commodity and it would be unusable, they would not be able to profit.

Why any of the royals give interviews or photo ops now is beyond me!

Where are all these angry TV viewers? The news three days ago was, "Channel 4 will show a documentary on Diana". The news two days ago was, "Channel 4 will still show a documentary on Diana". The news yesterday was, "Channel 4 will show a documentary on Diana tonight". The news today is "The documentary on Diana was shown last night on Channel 4". Most people were very bored of the exhaustive news coverage and are glad it's over so we can hear some real news. Most of the people who are supposedly are angry about it are total Mary Whitehouses and haven't even watched the programme.

I suppose that the people thought that the statement of the princes would have changed the decision of broadcasting the photos. It's more like a disapointement, it shows that the media always win ...

Maybe it goes some way to explaining Charles's "bloody people!" outburst. I mean, I think it had already come out in previous programmes that the tabloids were salivating to use those photos, but because Diana had died and at least early on people were blaming the press, they realised there would be a disastrous backlash, so Charles must have been aware of the real motivations behind the press taking the high road over these photos.

No, it shows that we live in a democracy where things like freedom of speech are valued. Whether we agree with what it said or not, it has a right to be said - that is what freedom is all about and if we begin to censor things because they offend a few fan clubs, then we're in serious trouble.

No and they're the only ones who have a right to call for it be removed. But in a democratic country, you can't have members of the Royal Family demanding the removal of TV programmes. I'm sure that Charles and Camilla would have liked the character assassination Channel 4 pulled on them not to be shown but they were anyway. It comes down to the age old advice - if you don't like it, don't watch it.

Yes, of course I agree on that point. It seems that Channel 4 has a tendency to broadcast some offensive things on Royals ? Am I right ?

Well, they're a leftist TV channel, indeed, their mandate for broadcasting was to be controversial and slightly left-wing. Naturally, about 99.9% of the coverage they put out about the Royals will be against them. It was Channel 4 who did the documentary "outting" the late Duke of Kent - was any consideration shown to Princess Alexandra and her brothers who certainly couldn't have enjoyed hearing their father ripped to pieces as a drug addict and bisexual but they remained silent on the issue. Channel 4 comes across as very anti-Royal but then you've got the BBC who are pro-Royal and their programmes never contain the content a programme on Channel 4 would.

Okay. It's good to have 2 different point of view. I think I would prefer watching BBC documentaries on the Royals than Channel 4 's. I like royalty (if I didn't I wouldn't be on that forum anyway ...) Thank you for answering .

William and Harry didn't "demand the removal of (a) television programme[s]". They asked Channel 4 not to include pictures of their dying mother in the documentary. It was a simple request, not a demand.
