Madonna's Reinvention tour
The documentary focuses on Madonna's 2004 Reinvention tour
Madonna's documentary I'm Going to Tell You a Secret is to receive its British TV premiere on Channel 4 next month.

The film, which follows Madonna on her 2004 Re-Invention tour, will be shown on Channel 4 on 1 December and repeated on digital channel E4 eight days later.

Directed by Jonas Akerlund, it received its US premiere in New York in October.

The documentary - which features her husband Guy Ritchie and the film-maker Michael Moore - is the singer's first since In Bed with Madonna in 1991.

Viewers will see behind the scenes footage, live concert highlights and film of the performer relaxing at home with her children, Lourdes and Rocco.

'Outside the box'

They will also see her giving her make-up man a dressing down for not being registered to vote.

In an interview with the MTV website, Madonna said she had considered releasing the film in cinemas but was put off by what it entailed.

"Unless you're Steven Spielberg distributors take all your DVD rights," she said.

"It was thinking outside the box to have it shown on TV."

Madonna's latest album, Confessions on a Dance Floor, is released on 14 November.
