WORTH NOTING ON TV

SUNDAY The Tony Awards (CBS, 9-11 p.m., E.T.): The most civilized and probably least-viewed of TV's awards shows airs live from Broadway's Minskoff Theatre. In the 45th version of the theater's big night, co-hosts Julie Andrews and Jeremy Irons preside over a roster of stars with production numbers keyed to this year's theme: the musical. Among the candidates, eyes are on "Miss Saigon." For Best Play, it's a race between Neil Simon's "Lost in Yonkers" and "Six Degrees of Separation," by John Guare.

MONDAY

Confessions of a Hitler Youth (HBO, 10-10:30 p.m.): Its tabloid title belies this short documentary's serious-minded, revealing approach to an often sensationalized subject: Hitler's hold on German youth. Alfons Hecklook, now a middle-aged man, describes being sucked into the spirit of the Nazi movement as a 10-year-old - and explains why he was vulnerable to its virulent doctrines.

Rediscovering America (Discovery Channel, 9-10 p.m.): Impressive Indian architecture - sophisticated earthworks, massive pyramids - was already in place, and some of it already in ruins, when the New World was discovered. This documentary takes a gently contrarian tack in marking the 500th anniversary of Columbus's arrival. It links the legacy of these original structures to buildings created later by settlers.

TUESDAY

Schwarzkopf (A&E cable, 8-9 p.m.): Taking the long view of the Gulf commander, this documentary puts the hero of the day - some say of the future - into the context of his life and career. His story is told through news clips and chats with people who have known Norman Schwarzkopf all his life.
