Two possible TV choices for your viewing pleasure tonight:
9:30pm - 10:00pm, KUHT-HD (8.1) Loreena McKennitt: No Journey's End
NO JOURNEY'S END is a visually stunning record of Loreena McKennitt's journey to the sources of her musical and spiritual roots. It follows McKennitt from her native Canada to the breathtaking landscapes and Celtic traditions of Ireland, and from the exotic rhythms of Morocco to echoes of Spain's rich medieval past. This intimate and unforgettable portrait features her haunting voice and melodies in recorded songs and live performances from her acclaimed albums The Visit and The Mask And Mirror, including the songs "The Lady Of Shalott," "The Bonny Swans" and "Santiago."
7:00pm - 10:00pm, KUHT-2 (8.2) Great Performances : "Hamlet"
William Shakespeare's "Hamlet," starring David Tennant as the Danish prince who asks "to be, or not to be?" and Patrick Stewart as Hamlet's uncle. Shakespeare’s immortal “To be, or not to be” takes on a whole new meaning (and medium) as classical stage and screen actors David Tennant and (recently-knighted) Sir Patrick Stewart reprise their roles for a modern-dress, film-for-television adaptation of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s (RSC) 2008 stage production of Hamlet. The production will be presented on PBS by the Great Performances series on Wednesday, April 28, 2010, at 8 p.m. EST (check local listings). Immediately following the broadcast, the film will be available online in its entirety here on the Great Performances Web site.
