UK - Memorial for Diana 10 years on

Ten years after the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, British television has been saturated with coverage of memorials to her. Sky News spent much of the morning reporting on events from around the country. Live coverage from Harrods was conveyed with Mohamed Abdel Moneim Fayed standing mournfully at the loss of his son Dodi. The BBC broadcast Live coverage of the memorial service in London which was attended by Diana’s sons Harry and William. Sky also broadcast pictures but had to rely on delayed pictures provided by the BBC. There has also been retrospective coverage of Diana’s life. Sky reported on her campaign against land mines and later brought viewers coverage of how the crash was reported ten years ago. CNN were also set to screen special programming with ‘Growing Up Diana’ which was plugged to show the “Diana you didn’t know”. Larry King Live also ran with a '10 Years Later' special.
