Princess Diana's brother accuses BBC

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

Princess Diana's brother has made new allegations about how the BBC gained his trust and access to his sister prior to her 1995 Panorama interview.

Notes Charles Spencer says he made at the time of a meeting he held with Martin Bashir suggest the Panorama reporter made a number of false and defamatory claims about senior royals.

The BBC has promised an inquiry if new evidence is presented.

The BBC says it has found the handwritten note from Princess Diana that it claimed clears Martin Bashir of wrongdoing in relation to his landmark 1995 interview with the royal.

The broadcaster had previously said it had lost the crucial piece of paper, which it used to explain away Bashir’s use of fake bank statements to gain an introduction to Diana.

An internal investigation at the time of the original broadcast concluded that Bashir did not coerce Diana into giving the interview and “we also have her word in writing for that”.

Until Friday the corporation had insisted it had lost the letter. However, after weeks of press coverage to mark the 25th anniversary of the interview, the BBC says that it has found the memo from Diana. It will provide the document to an independent inquiry that it is being set up to reinvestigate how Bashir obtained the interview.

Found it, its here, found it, here's the letter. defund the BBC losing 1million licence payers a year. So now charges your grandma. the £150'odd a year. meanwhile presenter Zoe Ball (radio) lost 1 million listeners and got a £1million pay rise. up from her £300,000 a year. to £1.3million. what the feck is that all about.

I'll never forgive or forget the BBC for the way they chose to back a foreign power (€U) over their own country. siding against their own citizens. disgrace.

Update:

Martin Bashir's Diana interview won't face criminal investigation, police say

BBC journalist Martin Bashir will not face a criminal investigation over documents related to his interview with Princess Diana, the Metropolitan Police says.

It had been alleged the journalist forged bank statements in order to secure the landmark Panorama interview with the Princess of Wales in 1995.

But in a statement, the Met said officers had sought legal advice from internal lawyers, independent counsel and the Crown Prosecution Service and determined it was "not appropriate" to launch a criminal probe.
