Do you mean, for instance, the tributes done by Shirley Jones for Burt Lancaster and John Waters for Vincent Price?
No Greg, it is a 16-hour documentary series on the history of cinema that has been running every Tuesday since September.
Tee, I have been loving the series. It is really one of the most comprehensive histories of cinema that I have encountered, but I love that it is also more than just names and dates...especially in the early years, when Cousins really gets into how editing and camerawork developed through films. As the series has gone on I have become less and less enchanted with it, but it is still required viewing.
