Beyonce’s documentary to air on BBC1


BBC One has announced that it is to screen Beyoncé documentary Life Is But A Dream.

The HBO film will get its UK premiere this month, following its US premier last month.

Directed and executive produced by the singer, the documentary delves into Beyoncé’s personal life, exploring her marriage to hip-hop star Jay-Z, the birth of their daughter Blue Ivy and her professional split from her father and manager Mathew Knowles.

Professional camera footage, private video from the star’s laptop and scenes shot during her May 2012 four-night revue at Revel Atlantic City also feature.

On its first US airing on February 16, Life Is But A Dream attracted 1.8m viewers – the largest audience for an HBO documentary since 2004.

Life Is But a Dream will premier on BBC1 on Thursday, March 28 at 10.35pm
