Published by
Euronews (English)

‘The Princess’ review: The story of Princess Diana, as the media told it and covered it

Published by
Chicago Tribune

Another documentary about Diana, Princess of Wales. What more is there to say — or be revealed — at this point? Not much. But “The Princess” on HBO, from director Ed Perkins, takes a unique approach: The film assembles news coverage that spans nearly two decades, from her 1981 engagement to Prince Charles to her 1997 car accident death in Paris. The end result is not so much the story of Diana (even though it obviously is) but a look at the telling of her story — as the media told it. Which means there are no present-day talking heads inserted along the way. Just clips stitched together chrono… Read More “‘The Princess’ review: The story of Princess Diana, as the media told it and covered it”

By Juliet Ferguson – Investigate Europe Travelling by train from central London, it doesn’t take long before the city gives way to a patchwork of mostly agricultural fields. But one of these fields is special. The Broadbalk field – part of the Rothamsted Estate – is the site of some of the oldest agricultural research experiments in the World.
