Journalist Martin Bashir’s interview with Princess Diana was broadcast in 1995.

The BBC’s “interview of the century” with Princess Diana 25 years ago generates a new controversy.

The BBC announced that it plans to conduct an internal investigation to determine whether the journalist who conducted the interview, Martin Bashin, acted maliciously so that the then wife of Prince Charles of England agreed to speak in front of the cameras.

The interview, broadcast in November 1995, was viewed by more than 20 million Britons and was considered the “first of the century”as many journalists had tried unsuccessfully to interview Diana of Wales.

It was in it that Diana revealed why she had parted ways with Prince Charles, a major scandal involving the British royal family.
