Diana concert on pay TV

THE TRIBUTE concert for Diana, Princess of Wales is to be broadcast on pay-per-view television.

Live rights for the 27 June concert at the Spencer family seat, Althorp Park in Northamptonshire, have been bought by cable consortium Front Row. As a result more than 90 per cent of the public will not be able to watch it.The BBC will broadcast an edited 90-minute version on 1 July, Diana's birthday. The bill includes Sir Cliff Richard, Chris de Burgh and Wet Wet Wet.
