BBC URGED TO UNEARTH ‘ROYAL FAMILY’ DOC THAT WAS LEAKED
A BBC royal family documentary leaked on YouTube should be publicised, a commentator said after urging the BBC to “reverse” its decision to keep it unpublished.
The Queen agreed with critics that the programme took away the mystery behind the royals by showing their daily lives, and Her Majesty kept it locked away in Palace vaults three years after it was aired on the BBC.
It was kept tightly under wraps – that is until, the entire programme was leaked on YouTube, before being removed again.
The debate as to why ‘Royal Family’ is kept so hidden has been reignited, with columnist Sean O’Grady weighing in on the drama.
He discussed his confusion at the secretiveness, because: “The Queen has been happy to be filmed in all sorts of informal settings, jumping up and down at the races, teasing her Prime Ministers, opening her post, that sort of thing.”
