Diana: In Her Own Words is prov­ing to be some­what con­tro­ver­sial, and you can see what all the fuss is about on Sun­day (Chan­nel 4, 8pm) Air­ing shortly be­fore the 20th an­niver­sary of her death, it has drawn on a unique his­tor­i­cal ar­chive - video tapes recorded by Diana’s speech coach, UK-based Amer­i­can ac­tor Pe­ter Set­te­len, who she hired to help her pre­pare to pub­licly present her own ac­count of events and rein­vent her pub­lic per­sona. Some of the footage is be­ing broad­cast for the first time and none of it has been seen on Bri­tish TV. What Set­te­len cap­tured in 1992 and 1993 is the only known un­medi­ated video ever recorded with Diana. It shows her re­hears­ing her speak­ing voice, re­flect­ing at length on her up­bring­ing, her courtship with the Prince of Wales, her mar­riage and her pub­lic life.
