Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind (8 p.m., HBO) -- Marina Zenovich directs this funny but heartbreaking portrait of Robin Williams from his youthful days in the San Francisco Bay area to the wild days of the late 1970s Los Angeles to his death in 2014. The film uses Williams’ own words from interviews, home movies and onstage footage, as well as interviews with those who knew and loved him -- Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, David Letterman, Steve Martin, Eric Idle, Pam Dawber and his son, Zak Williams. After Williams’ suicide in 2014, it was revealed that he had been suffering from the disease Lewy Body Dementia.
