Most of us can remember where we were and what we were doing on August 31st 1997.I was 12 years old, and had just got out of bed. I switched on the television with the intention of watching cartoons when I saw Martyn Lewis announcing the death of Princess Diana. I sat watching the BBC’s coverage for several hours before going for a bike ride with my uncle.

Here are a few images of television coverage from the BBC, CNN, ITV and Sky from that day, as well as a holding slide that QVC used at the time and a caption advising viewers to turn to the BBC for updates.
