A fitting tribute
1 September 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

A timely documentary to commemorate 20 years since the very sad death of Diana, with this one focusing specifically on the day of the funeral.

I think everyone remembers where they were on that day, and this documentary works hard to present us as an audience with as many previously unheard accounts from various viewpoints from people on that day.

It was a touching piece of television.
