Taking of Prince Harry fails to take viewers

The controversial drama documentary of what would happen if Prince Harry was kidnapped in Afghanistan only attracted 970,000 viewers last night.

The programme had caused controversy even before it had aired last night. The head of the British army wrote to Channel 4 asking them to reconsider airing the programme. Channel 4 are probably wishing that they had listened to him as just under 1 million viewers tuned in at 9.00pm.


The night got even worse for Channel 4 when followed at 10.30pm, True Blood could only draw 560,000 viewers.
