2 TV programs, one an Oscar winner, on the tube
Here’s a couple of Monday Sept. 3 programs of more than modest interst:
Starz Cinema premieres of “The Queen” followed by “Diana The Witnesses In The Tunnel.” I don’t think “Tunnel” is all that good, but for some it might be a winner. “The Queen” is just that, of course.
“The Queen” – (Helen Mirren, Michael Sheen, James Cromwell)
Helen Mirren gives an Oscar-winning performance as Queen Elizabeth II in this intimate portrait of the British Royal Family in the wake of Princess Diana’s death.
8:15 p.m. on Starz Cinema
“Diana The Witnesses in the Tunnel reveals the exclusive story of those who arrived first on the scene, featuring interviews with photographers and other witnesses. Through these revealing recollections the viewer discovers what really took place on that horrific night, why the photographers were arrested and what happened to them and the photographs they took. The film features archive footage of Princess Diana, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry.
10 p.m. on Starz Cinema
