The Royal Family’s relationship with the media is a complicated one, guarded at best and deeply suspicious at worst. Called simply ‘Royal Family’, the fly-on-the-wall doc, directed by the then-head of the BBC’s documentary department Richard Cawston, it aired on June 21, 1969, was repeated one week later on ITV and then variously that year, before being locked away deep in the BBC vaults and never shown again. It represented the first time that TV cameras had been given permission to document the Royals going about their daily business in such a manner, with the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward all featuring, and a voiceover penned by 'Yes Minister’ mastermind Sir Antony Jay.
It’s been over a decade since Sabrina The Teenage Witch wound up its final series (and 20 years since it started, way back in 1996). Based on the Archie comic book series, it centred around Melissa Joan Hart’s sparky sorceress, her aunts Hilda and Zelda and talking cat Salem. The show ran for seven seasons, attracting audiences of up to 12 million in the US in its heyday. But what are its stars doing now?

After leisure centre manager Gordon Brittas (Chris Barrie) is cursed by a gypsy, things get apocalyptic when people start dying after eating his food.
