CBC airing documentary about the Queen in 3-D
The 3-D revolution is making its way from theatres to Canadian television next month in the most exciting way possible: a documentary on the Queen. Viewers won’t need a special TV to watch CBC’s Queen Elizabeth in 3D (only in Canada are movie titles this inane), but they will need glasses, which will be available for free at Canada Post.
While the prospect of seeing the Queen in 3-D but not in the flesh could be construed as an intolerable tease, the doc (airing on September 20) will be followed by more Queen-ness, with a broadcast of Oscar-winning The Queen, starring Helen Mirren. This embracing of 3-D technology is fine and dandy, but we just have one question: would James Cameron approve?
