Premieres Monday, August 14 at 9 PM ET/PT
on National Geographic Channel

          In 1991, inside London’s Kensington Palace, Diana, Princess of Wales, participated in a series of secret interviews, recorded with her permission by a close friend on behalf of journalist Andrew Morton. Morton was writing a book about Diana’s life to reveal what life was really like for the most photographed woman in the world. The public was unaware that Diana, Princess of Wales’, marriage to HRH Prince of Wales was at a crisis point. Now, National Geographic Documentary Films reveals Diana’s thoughts and feelings at a very specific point in her life, presenting one side of a very complicated story…her side.
 

          Entirely in her voice, with no interviews, most of these unique recordings have never been broadcast before. Executive produced by acclaimed Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Tom Jennings of 1895 Films (Challenger Disaster: Lost Tapes; MLK: The Assassination Tapes), “DIANA: IN HER OWN WORDS” weaves archival footage and photography with these rarely heard recordings and is the latest presentation under the National Geographic Documentary Films banner. The film shines fresh perspective on the Princess’ emotional journey from childhood to her relationship with HRH Prince of Wales and her pervasive public life under the microscope.
