Interpreting Diana by Rob Turnock
Book DescriptionDrawing on wide-ranging replies from people around the country, this title examines the role television played in providing news about the event of the Princess of Wales' death. The book goes on to explore the reasons why Diana's death affected so many people and suggests that TV is integral to the way we think about the world around us. At the same time, this study shows a Britain that was far from "united in grief" and that, while many people were profoundly upset, others were indifferent and surprised by the media interest and "mass hysteria".
