After the tragic death of Princess Diana recently, there was much controversy over the role of the press as an intrusive force that helped lead to her demise. PBS Frontline, in a companion site to a recent TV documentary on the relationship between the English press and monarchy, examines this controversy in detail. Interviews with thirteen journalists, including Andrew Morton, who wrote a controversial biography of the late Princess; a transcript of Diana's Interview with the BBC in 1995; selected tabloid pictures and headlines; and a timeline illustrating British royalty encounters with the press are featured. A transcript of the show will be available shortly. As always, Frontline tackles controversial issues, and while some users may not agree with the tone or conclusions of the show (and site), there is a gold mine of information on the topic here.
