Displaying the date properly from a MySQL timestamp date field? Different in MySQLi?

I'm trying to display a date, taken from a TIMESTAMP MySQL database field in the following format:
Monday 18th June 2015

I've checked umpteen resources online but when I try implementing it on my page I just get a blank output. Here's what I tried last, before the 100 previous attempts...
<?php echo(date_format($rsNEWSINFO->getColumnVal("TMSAnewsdate"), 'l jS F Y')); ?>

What am I doing wrong and is there an online resource for formatting MySQLi recordset values somewhere? It sure would be handy.

Thank you.

It is the same in MySQL and MySQLi

try:

php:
<?php echo(date('l jS F Y'$rsNEWSINFO->getColumnVal("TMSAnewsdate"))); ?>

All of the dates are showing as 1st January 1970 even though they are correctly specified in the database.
The field is a TIMESTAMP field.

Found a solution...

php:
<?php echo(date('l jS F Y'strtotime($rsNEWSINFO->getColumnVal("TMSAnewsdate")))); ?>



Thank you Ray.
