When aired on Aussie T.V. My Wife, myself and my 3 children were all delighted with this story. Wife and self had read the book. Children soon wanted to read it and did. The book is so well written that it is wonderful to have the film production so well put together. Great script, great story, great acting, great direction. We have asked the A.B.C. and the B.B.C.to re-run it or (even better) release a video/DVD of it, all without success.
The only show of the equal to Diana would be 'To Serve Them All My Days' also from R.F. Delderfield, and that (thankfully) has recently been made available as a DVD.
You cant get Diana, the movie, so suggest you read the book then agitate for the mini-series to be re-run or released. You will love them both!
