Charlie Brooker`s Screen burn
`Sky News in 3D could be thrilling. You could have your eye out on some of their graphics`
by Charlie Brooker
Last week, Channel 4 brought you The Execution Of Gary Glitter. This week, it`s Brian May`s Stereogram Images of the Monarchy in 3D. Either they`re having a breakdown or I am. Actually, the Brian May thing is a small part of The Queen In 3D, one of a raft of programmes broadcast during Channel 4 3D Week. It`s about two charming old men who filmed the 1953 coronation in 3D. We get to see most of their original material, together with some new 3D sequences of Her Majesty they`ve shot for this programme. They seem to enjoy it in the manner of wildlife footage, cooing audibly whenever she wanders close to the lens, as though she`s a particularly interesting moorhen whose plumage they`ve managed to capture.
