"Charles and Camilla: Whatever Love Means" 2005 Granada telemovie
 
It came on at 3am here but it is the premiere-not Saturday as the WE homepage says. Diana lovers be warned-she is portrayed as simpering and simple. It is on WE right now. Here is a link for those who would like to see it. I am also including a link for the video, for those of you who do not get WE. It will not ship until January.

Has it been on our ITV here already? I hope I haven't missed it. I'm desperate to see it - at last, a nice drama about Charles and Camilla!

Amy 12-02-2005 11:11 AM

I don't think it has already been shown, i haven't seen it discussed in any of the newspapers so i don't think we have missed it. I am still undecided if i am going to watch it, especially after the dreadful one about Princess Margaret. Too many royal documantarys are fiction based around few known facts but covered in the media beforehand to make people believe that the whole documentary is true.

I refused to watch the Princess Margaret one. So I can't comment or say it was bad because I didn't see it. That was Mary Whitehouse's biggest flaw - she complained and ranted but when someone said, "Did you watch it?", she foolishly admitted to not having watched it at all.

Count me in her group then :o I watched the first little bit but decided i couldn't bear to watch any more.

Well, watching a little bit and deciding you can't watch anymore is fine and you're justified in not liking it and switching off - but she didn't make an attempt to watch a tiny bit. If she heard that a programme contained nudity or swearing she just boycotted it. It worked in reverse of course, when she said don't watch it the programme got through the roof viewing figures. Apparantly, my Great-Great Grandmother used to say, "There's this programme and Mary Whitehouse has said we're not to watch it so we will 'cos there's bound to be a bit of sex in it"

I watched it all:o , I felt sorry for the Queen, Prince Philip and the rest of her family. It gave an absolutely terrible portrayal of her.

The Charles and Camilla one is for our 'delectation over the festive period':)

So did i. I think they should be allowed to control more media around them, not newspapers and magazines and you can never truly control those but with something like a television documentary they should be allowed to stop the ones airing that are fictional and damaging.

Yes it should all have to be ok'd by the people directly affected!:)

The Princess Margaret drama reminded me of a sketch that Monty Python did . Graham Chapman was dressed as Mary Whitehouse and he said in a high pitched yelp, "I object to all this sex on the television. I keep falling off".

Royal Fan 12-02-2005 01:54 PM

ill take a look if I Have the channel

Lady Marmalade 12-02-2005 01:55 PM

In Britain though, do they have the power to control television shows such as that?

BeatrixFan 12-02-2005 01:58 PM

Not any more. I posted this about theatre shows, but it was the same for TV

Until 1967, every TV, Radio and Theatre Show had to be previewed by the Lord Chamberlain. He had the power to remove sections and parts that were seen as unfit for the general public. He also had a duty to 'protect the Queen's Majesty'. For example, Joe Orton's plays were usually refused the Lord Chamberlain's approval which meant that if they attempted to put them on stage or on TV, they had broken the law and could be arrested. The Lord Chamberlain lost that privelage in 1967 when a general can of worms opened and nudity etc were seen as being acceptable on stage.

Thank you Sam. :)

Good heavens, I never knew that, still in '67, I was a bit busy!:D

Kenneth Williams used to tell a story about when he was in a Joe Orton play and he had to say a line which was absolute filth and had been cut by the Lord Chamberlain and the Lord Chamberlain sent a representative to the Theatre with 10 policemen. The representative said, "If you say those lines, you'll all be arrested". And in the end, the show was cancelled.

It will premier in the US on saturday on the WE channel. The whole day will be devoted to royalty. There will be progams and the young and sexy royals and Dianas dresses and many more. It will be topped of with whatever love means at 8 pm ET.

Thanks so much for the info. I'll have to go and get an 8 hr tape so that I can tape it and watch the entire day later on. Even for the Royals, I won't miss Christmas Decorating Day!!!:p

I caught this movie by mistake late last night and my heavens... there are no words to describe it. Put it this way, I wasted two hours of my life last night watching this program.

The way the actors portray Charles, Camilla, and Diana (especially) is quite grotesque. I found myself having little to no sympathy for all three; basically, if this movie were to be 100% true to the "T" I would simply have no resapect for either party today and could only think "Karma is a ____."

Watch the movie for yourself and you decide.


edited for, as usual, spelling.
