Diana, Princess of Wales’ November 1995 interview with the BBC’s Panorama was one of the most momentous programmes in the history of television. Its revelations stunned the world, painted the monarchy as cruel and oppressive, and put its future in jeopardy. Allegations about how and why Diana was persuaded by a relatively unknown journalist to take part have remained unanswered down the years. Now, 25 years later, Diana: The Truth Behind the Interview speaks to key insiders at the BBC and those who knew and worked closely with the princess; and, using revealing archive documents, the programme pieces together the full story behind the explosive interview.
