How many episodes are in Diana’s Decades on ITV?

Diana’s Decades is coming to ITV on July 8 and promises to be a fresh approach to the late Princess’s life.

The docuseries will be a three-part miniseries and will focus on Princess Diana’s impact on the cultural zeitgeist during her life.

Each episode will highlight how each era of her life encapsulated the spirit of the age and inspired social change. 

The three episodes will run weekly, with episode two dropping on July 15 and the final, third episode coming July 22.

Each episode will be an hour-long and will run from 9pm on ITV, with the show also being available on ITV Hub following its premiere.

The official synopsis of the series reads: “Princess Diana was an icon who both captured and transformed the spirit of the times.

“Following how this thoroughly modern princess emerged from the bra-burning spirit of the 1970s and helped transform not just the Royal Family, but Britain itself.”

There will be a combination of rare archival footage and new interviews with people that met Diana or intersected with her.

The eras will focus on her young life when she was a shy bride, through her work for HIV charities and her connections with Hollywood and pop royalty in the 1980s.

Finally, the show will focus on her becoming the People’s Princess she is still known as today.

The series will also look at how she impacted Britain at the time of the New Labour government of the 1990s.

In the background, the series will showcase the changing face of the UK during the time, from 24-hour news channels and the confessional TV of Oprah Winfrey to the rise of the Spice Girls.

Daniela Neumann, the Managing Director of Spun Gold TV, the production company that is working with ITV to produce the show, release a statement upon the show’s announcement. 

The MD said: “Nearly 25 years on from her tragic death, Diana, Princess of Wales continues to lead our news bulletins and conversations not just in Britain but around the world.

“Diana’s Decades takes a fresh approach to recounting her life and legacy by looking at how she was shaped by the changing world around her and as a result transformed not just the monarchy but also society more widely as her legacy.”

The Executive Producer of the show, Teresa Watkins, also released a statement for the series, highlighting the importance of telling Princess Diana’s story.

She explained: “This is Diana’s story but it’s also the story of us, and how we’ve been marked by her life even in ways we are not fully aware of. 

“And we’ve gone all out to track down people who were there at the time so that we can bring fresh insight into the life, and times, of Diana, Princess of Wales.”

The documentary series was filmed and directed by Nick Angel and produced by Jim Boyers, alongside Teresa Watkins.

Angel has previously directed television documentaries such as Britain’s Fat Fight with High Fearnley-Whittingstall and The £60,000 Puppy: Cloning Man’s Best Friend.

His other projects include Sex, Lies & Zumba, Cutting Edge, Meet the Middletons, and Togas on TV.

Diana’s will be available to watch weekly on ITV from July 8.
