Martin Bashir: BBC criticised over Diana interview
Mr Bashir faked documents to obtain the interview and later lied to BBC managers about them, the inquiry said.
The BBC said the report showed “clear failings” adding: “We are very sorry for this.”
Mr Bashir apologised for mocking up the documents, but said they had no bearing on Diana’s decision to be interviewed.
Princess Diana‘s interview with Martin Bashir for Panorama was a huge scoop for the BBC – in it, the princess famously said: “There were three of us in this marriage.”
It was the first time a serving royal had spoken so openly about life in the Royal Family – viewers saw her speak about her unhappy marriage to Prince Charles, their affairs, and her bulimia.
