SAD REMINDER OF DIANA.
I'M delighted my old employers ITN have started getting rid of irritating gimmicks in news bulletins on the orders of ITV's new boss Michael Grade.
Sadly the silly "strap" captions to introduce correspondents' reports have not gone yet.
So on Thursday night the words "Poignant Pictures" flashed up just ahead of security camera images of Princess Diana.
Well, they weren't poignant to me. They were utterly sad and dispiriting - images of a beautiful young woman forced to skulk around in the service lift and corridors of a Parisian hotel to avoid the attentions of the paparazzi outside.
Yes, Diana did some silly things, but how I wish we could do what Prince Harry called for at the service to mark the 10th anniversary of her death and just remember his mother for all the good things she did in her all-too-short life.
