ITV announces landmark Princess Diana film
ITV today announces a unique, landmark documentary, which will celebrate the life and work of Diana, Princess of Wales, in the 20th year since her tragic death.
Made by Oxford Film and Television, producers of ITV’s Our Queen at 90, the film will be built around contributions from The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, both of whom talk openly about their mother and how her influence has shaped their lives.
Their Royal Highnesses will also offer their perspective on The Princess' unique contribution to public life, including her charitable and humanitarian work. Areas including Landmines, Child Bereavement, Homelessness and HIV and AIDS, will be explored.
The film, which will be broadcast on ITV later in the year, will also include individual contributions from many key figures in the Princess’ life.
The documentary is commissioned for ITV by Jo Clinton-Davis, Controller of Factual and Sue Murphy, Head of Factual Entertainment.
Jo said:“This new ITV film will offer viewers a fresh and revealing insight into Princess Diana through the personal and intimate reflections of her two sons and of her friends and family, many of whom have never spoken before, to bring together a definitive portrait of a unique person who touched the lives of millions.”
The film’s Executive Producer at Oxford Film and Television is Nick Kent, and the Producer / Director is Ashley Gething. Nick said: “This film will show Princess Diana in a way she has never been seen before, through the eyes of the two people who knew her best.”
