This is the story of the interview. The interview which told her story. A story that shocked the world.

“Why should I stay silent? They’ve been trying to shut me up from day one. This way I'll finally be heard."

On 20 November 1995, the BBC broadcast an interview between Princess Diana and Martin Bashir. It was watched by hundreds of millions worldwide. But now, it is said, the interview has no legitimacy. Is it right that the way it came about has overshadowed what it was meant to be?

Jonathan Maitland’s new play gives an insight into the story behind the interview: the woman who gave it, the man who made it happen, and the institution that broadcast it. The Interview poses tough questions: what can we justify in the pursuit of truth? Can we trust our great institutions? And are we ever, really, in control of our own narrative… our legacy?
