Di­ana: In Her Own Words

TV Times - - Sunday -

doc­u­men­tary / 8.00pm / C4

It’s al­most 20 years since the death of the Princess of Wales, and part of C4’s pro­gram­ming to mark the an­niver­sary is this doc­u­men­tary promis­ing Di­ana as we’ve never seen her be­fore. Its sell­ing point is ma­te­rial from video tapes recorded be­tween 1992 and 1993 by speech coach Peter Set­te­len, who Di­ana hired to help hone her public per­sona. The tapes show an un­guarded Di­ana prac­tis­ing her public speak­ing voice and talk­ing about pri­vate mat­ters, and their ex­is­tence has pro­voked con­tro­versy over the years, in­clud­ing the 2004 storm around ex­cerpts be­ing broad­cast on US chan­nel NBC. What will we learn from see­ing their con­tents to­day?

Con­tro­ver­sial tapes re­veal the pri­vate side of the Princess
