This is a fantastic documentary, examination of human behaviour, and modern celebrity culture.
I missed this when on the TV and just watched it today.
Do watch it if you enjoy counter culture. Hitchens as ever is excellent.
I was flabbergasted that week, by the sheer, over the top, behaviour of Brits to the extent I actually missed the old "stiff upper lip", anal Brits.
Dubs (mostly middleaged housewives and extremist Indo readers) also got on the the bandwagon, and queued to leave bouqeuts outside the British Embassy.
AFAIR. the Flag in Leinster House was at half mast.
The fact that Mother Teresa died days earlier and only received some tepid, mediocre feigned mourning in Dublin was noted.
The documentary mentions the extreme censoring of any opinion that ran counter to the New Labour media circus.
Noel Gallagher summed up the hysteria succintly when he suggested that the tens of thousands who travelled miles to mourn for Diana, probably hadn't visited their own Gran's grave for over a decade.
For those not young enough to remember, watch and learn how the media can control the masses.
