Screen Gems: TV the week of April 18

The McVeigh Tapes: Confessions of an American Terrorist (9 p.m. Monday, MSNBC) -- Culled from 45 Mcveigh hours of taped interviews granted to newspaper reporters while Timothy McVeigh was in prison, this documentary offers a chilling self-portrait of the alienated U.S. Army veteran executed for the 1995 bombing in Oklahoma City that took scores of lives.

Burma VJ (9:30 p.m. Tuesday, HBO) -- Locked away from the global media, Burma's military government has jailed, tortured and killed its opponents with impunity for almost five decades. Perhaps this documentary, shot by underground journalists who smuggled their footage out via the Internet, will change things.

You Don't Know Jack (9 p.m. Saturday, HBO) -- A high-powered cast -- including Al Pacino, Brenda Vaccaro, John Goodman and Susan Sarandon, not to forget executive producer Barry Levinson -- highlights this docudrama about the Detroit physician who went to prison for helping his patients kill themselves.
