BBC Newsnight: Princess Diana, Martin Bashir and the BBC: How can the BBC move forward?


May 22, 2021

As the fallout of Lord Dyson’s report continues, Prime Minister Boris Johnson warns “the deceit” used to secure the interview with Princess Diana must never happen again. But how can the corporation move forward from the crisis?

The PM said he was “very concerned” after an inquiry found Martin Bashir faked documents for his 1995 interview. The Duke of Cambridge said the deception fuelled his mother’s paranoia and worsened his parents’ relationship. The BBC said it had made fundamental changes in governance since the 1990s.

Newsnight is the BBC’s flagship news and current affairs TV programme – with analysis, debate, exclusives, and robust interviews.
