Channel 4 to become Channel 3D tonight

Broadcaster's 3D TV week begins

Security for virtualized datacentres

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. ®
