I posted this in the baer thread. I posted here just in case none of you peeked into that thread.
I saw the programme, CBS discussed the French trial of the death of Diana. Supposedly the paparrazi were the cause of the death of Diana, Dodi, and Henri Paul.
However, the French court came to the conclusion that the paparazzi, and the fellow in the white Fiat Uno weren't the ones that caused the crash. It was Henri Paul that caused it, because his blood had a high count of alcohol.
CBS came to the conclusion that Dodi Al Fayed's father has part of the fault, Dodi, and Henri as well. This contradicts what Mohammed Al Fayed (the father of Dodi) has been saying all along about MI 6 having some sort of role in the death of Diana.
About the chap in the Fiat Uno that supposedly disappeared. He was found dead in his car (not the Fiat), it was concluded as a suicide. I don't remember why he commited suicide though.
Still, the majority of the programme exposed Diana's lovers, and that Dodi was never Diana's lover, but a friend. Supposedly Diana had a boyfriend, a Pakistani cardiologist by the name of Kahn. He and Diana wanted to get married, but Kahn's parents didn't approve of Diana because she was English, and not Muslim. So Kahn felt obligated to end the relationship with Diana, and he did. She was furious, so she found Dodi, went to France (I think), hired a photographer, and that's when the whole "Diana and Dodi" hoopla began, just to get back at Kahn. It didn't seem to work though, I recall.
When Diana died, Kahn was there in the funeral in Westminster Abbey.
About the photo, CBS showed a photo of Diana trapped in the car. According to the French medic that was in the scene, she was unconcious and still alive. The picture showed Diana's head (still attached to her body mind you, not being morbid or anything) with blood trinkling from her left temple. However, this photo was shown in black and white. I assume that there is a print in colour, but to lessen the morbid factor, they showed it black and white. The other pictures and footage were the ones that we might've seen before like the totalled car, and the survailance tape of the last moments of Henri, Dodi and Diana.
Overall, it was interesting. It wasn't that distasteful at all.
