Comments about PBS The Statue of Liberty DVD:

Our 4 year old is fascinated with The Statue of Liberty! I was so excited to find this DVD for him. He sits and watches it from beginning to end, picking up pieces of information to reiterate to others later. Thank you for making such wonderful programs!

Burns' Statue of Liberty" & My Tears

By Roger

from Hanover, NH 03755

Comments about PBS The Statue of Liberty DVD:

I saw Ken Burn's Video the "Statue of Liberty" by accident (just checking if my TV worked). The story of the design & construction were fascinating: that immense statue didn't just happen, it took the genius of many individuals. The last part of the video, seeing immigrants arriving just as my own grandparents arrived, & then hearing contemporary figures of note express their feelings about the statue as symbol of the U.S. had a different effect:I've been crying like a baby, knowing my blessings & remembering a visit to Auschwitz where I saw, with my own eyes, where I would have been burned to ash had my grandparents not been able to come to the land of the Statue of Liberty. THANKS FOR REMINDING ME OF THE ENORMITY OF MY BLESSINGS.

Okay, but not up to Burn's usual work

By Chuck

Comments about PBS The Statue of Liberty DVD:

I was disappointed in the show. It was okay, but nothing more. The part of the show talking about the building of the statue in Paris, and the final trip to New York was well done, but after that it fell apart. A number of talking heads, some good and others a waste of time. No followup on the history of the statue after it arrived in New York. Not impressed with most of the talking heads Burns used.

A must for all

By Michael B

Comments about PBS The Statue of Liberty DVD:

Once again, PBS showed us the real story with comments from a slice of Americans to whom the Statue of Liberty has different meaning. Even though this was produced some years ago, it is relevant even now.
