    Documentary about Princess Margaret and John Bindon's alleged relationship; might be worth a gander?



    Further documentaries to follow over the next four weeks

    It well might Chevs......I usually enjoy these programmes about the royals, they always seem to drag up the same people for interviews; Sarah Taylor-Bradford, Countess Mountbatten, etc; in the excellent Britmovie 'Bank job' set in the early 70's Princess Margaret is made out to be a very naughty girl indeed!

    My Princess Margaret memory was a night spent on the pavement outside Westminster Abbey as a 'minder' to two fellow students. All to see her get married. Waste of time that was. I think I became a republican after that show.

    I think the Princess enjoyed a bit of 'rough trade' now and then, as a change from all those toffs.......

    name='billy bentley']Is it confirmed they were lovers ?


    Not in so many words but I believe it to be the case. How Vicky Hodge put up with it all is beyond me



    Good to see two of the Dennis brothers in fine form.



    There are three more programmes in this "Toffs and Crims" series over the coming weeks

    Unless I am under the bed with a camera and a microphone, then I never take second hand opinions.

    I missed this damn it!, perhaps another chance to see on C4 iplayer perhaps.



    Anyway was going to say that Bindon was a real nasty piece of work in real life, a "real" hardnut who was fearless, gawd help the person who stepped on his toes

    Only from the back, I don't think they could find a stunt double!

    Don't think so. They said he turned up on the island with no money.
