Popping into Sainsbury’s tonight for up some milk and bread? Then don’t forget to grab your free 3D glasses, so you can enjoy Channel 4 in new depths – well, three – from tonight.

At 9pm, the channel kicks of its “3D Week” with a three-dimensional look back at the life and times of... er... the Queen during her coronation in 1953.

If a 3D royal review isn’t your thing then Channel 4 also has several other 3D treats in store over the coming days, although it’s important to note that - despite C4 calling it “3D week” – you won’t see everything from Hollyoaks to John Snow’s evening news bulletins broadcast in 3D.

Some of the channel’s scheduled multi-dimensional treats will include Derren Brown's 3D Magic Spectacular, Friday the 13th Part III and a joint concert by Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus. What both of 'em?

All 3D programmes are best viewed in a dark room, C4 stressed, and watched from a central position at least 1.5m away from the screen.

Details about C4’s 3D programmes are available online now. Glasses are available for free from branches of Sainsbury’s until 22 November. ®
