SPECIAL: ‘Diana – Her Last Ten Days In Pictures’
Sunday August 12
Nearly a decade on, the world is still fascinated by Diana and the manner of her untimely death. The legacy she left in the photographs of that time show a woman in her prime – confident, attractive and poised on the brink of a new life. In Diana – Her Last Ten Days In Pictures we uncover the truth behind those iconic shots.
With unprecedented access to the archive of ‘Big Pictures’, we follow her final trail, from Al Fayed’s yacht in St Tropez, to the Ritz in Paris and her last journey, which ended so tragically in the Alma Tunnel. In-depth interviews with key players will uncover the real story behind the shots; including the man responsible for the infamous ‘crash’ pictures and the inside scoop from one of her closest confidantes. From the BBC’s Royal Correspondent to her favourite photographer, Diana – Her Last Ten Days In Pictures will feature the testimony of those who really know what went on.
Diana lived and died by the camera. She had a complex relationship with the press and paparazzi, at times courting publicity, at others shying away from the intrusion. Did their pursuit of her on that fateful night lead to her death or did Diana get caught up in a dangerous game of her own making? Did she manipulate the paparazzi with secret phone calls to ‘set up’ the shots or was she hounded to the end by the press? We also reveal what happened to the shocking photographs taken of Diana and Dodi as they lay dieing and disclose what their owner intends to do with these horrific images and the millions he’s been offered for them.
Diana and Dodi’s romance led to a paparazzi feeding frenzy, but did the loving images of them splashed across the tabloids tell the whole story? One of the UK’s foremost body language experts will reveal Di and Dodi’s hidden feelings for each other. Was Diana using the pictures to get to the real love of her life, and exact revenge on the Royal family and Prince Charles? Interviews with her closest allies will uncover the truth about her last romance.
Diana – Her Last Ten Days In Pictures features dozens of candid shots, many that have never been seen before, that reveal her true character – a mother, fiercely proud of her two sons, an independent woman, apparently at the start of a new romance, an icon of poise and style. The photographs are a microcosm of her life and a chilling record of her tragic death.
