On Franceinfo this morning, the credit for footage was to Harpo Productions/CBS without any mention of it being on MyTF1.

No it wouldn't have been on C5.

It has been reported that ITV's £1Million was less than Skys and C4 bid...but they went with ITV as it would attract more eyeballs.

Channel 4 paying for a royal exclusive would have been really weird.


Why?

I dunno, just because I think of them as the 'anti-establishment' channel. E.g. Alternative Christmas Message and C4 News' tendency to relegate royal news to in brief items that other bulletins would treat as bigger news items. I just wouldn't have even contemplated something like this being on C4.

I don't think it would have looked entirely out of place sandwiched between Changing Rooms and Bake Off. Not sure when you last watched Channel 4 but they've had their share of Royal Family documentaries.

I know, I've watched some of them! Just hard to shift that image of Channel 4 in my head.

I get it but it's been a hell of a long time since Channel 4 was that kind of truly anti establishment channel. They have excellent shows but it's largely mainstream nowadays.

Channel 5 will indirectly do well out of this with the material for loads more of those Saturday night royal documentaries.


I'll bet a tenner we get the following...
Meghan and Harry : Their Truth
Meghan and Harry : Crisis At The Palace
Oprah - Where Did It All Go Right?
A History of Royals and Racism
Silence or Silenced? The Story of THAT Interview
Sitting down with Oprah - Sarah and Meghan


I mean, the one that was on Saturday already used footage from it. "Harry & Meghan vs The Monarchy"

Ratings for CBS This Morning. The first time they beat NBC Today and ABC GMA in the ratings following the H&M interview. The programme featured additional exclusive clips from the interview

The whole thing has been a far bigger success than I would’ve imagined.

Pretty impressive ratings, I would say.
