    The story behind the documentary that ruined Michael Jackson’s career

    When the documentary ‘Living with Michael Jackson’ aired in February 2003, it was watched by an astonishing 15 million people in the UK, and a further 38 million on ABC in the US, as well as many millions more around the world.

Jackson, who was a huge fan of Diana, Princess of Wales, was keen on receiving the kind of public sympathy Diana got after her now infamous ‘Panorama’ interview with Bashir in 1995.
