Dispatches - The Problem Princes
Monday, 23rd February 2009
8pm to 9pm
Channel 4 News presenter Alex Thomson investigates the roles currently adopted by the royal princes Andrew and Edward (Charles seems to have been left alone by this documentary) and asks how their activities are shaping the modern monarchy that Prince William will inherit. From the outset it looks like William may well be heading down the same mistake strewn path as his two Uncles, as it is revealed just what a lazy bugger he seems to be with regard to Royal Duties; and how his military career is really all just smoke, spin and mirrors (and landing a whopping great helicopter on your girlfriend's parents' lawn).
Thomson delves into just how transparent the Royals' finances are, both in relation to what they cost the tax payer and concerning some of the older princes' personal business and property dealings. Cue reference to a lot of helicopter and plane trips to golf matches or to functions just down the road from the Princes' homes. Plus there are some shady dealings in the property market and conflicts of interest with ex-Soviet republic despots.
All in all, this is your typical Dispatches stitch up fare - never use an inquisitive question when you can get away with a stiletto in the back - and all good fun for that.
