Well, I must admit that, after I learned of Diana's death from posts on
this forum, I immediately turned on the BBC on shortwave.  When I finished
online, I turned on the TV and stayed up quite late watching.  I
particularly liked the way CNN and Fox gave us direct feeds from BBC and
SkyChannel, so that we could see Britain's own reporting of the tragedy.
