Review

It’s 25 years since the doe eyes of Diana, Princess of Wales were captured looking close to tears on Panorama. An audience of more than 22 million watched her speak out on adultery, her eating disorder and depression in an interview the Queen regarded – at least according to a recent Channel 5 documentary – as “frightful”.

Now, Channel 4 has its say on those blonde bombshells as it presents what is claimed to be “the full story” of that incendiary sit-down chat with Martin Bashir. No previews were available, but we’re promised frank accounts from BBC insiders as well as the dusting down of revealing archive documents.
