New York ... Misery and magic, toil to triump !

By R. W. Sinclair

from LaSalle, Ontario, Canada

Comments about PBS American Experience: New York: A Documentary Film by Ric Burns DVD 8PK:

New York .... if Ric Burns and his colleagues could have created a better documentary, then perfection would require a new definition.
This story of the struggles and successes that led a small Dutch colony to become a world-renowned mega-city of diversity and development is informative yes; but the tale is also presented by means of an enjoyable and seam-free flow of successive time capsules revealing the events and personalities that molded Gotham into the unique place that it became in world history. To many, New York is Broadway, the Yankees, and the sadness of September 11th; when they leave this documentary it will be a complimentary spider-web of interconnected nations, commerce, tragedies and triumphs. New York, New York ... bravo !!

Comments about PBS American Experience: New York: A Documentary Film by Ric Burns DVD 8PK:

Viewing the New York DVDs was an incredible experience for
me. I am fairly well-versed in history, but this well-crafted
series went far beyond what I had expected. I highly recommend it for everyone interested in how the U.S. came about by viewing the example of New York. Do buy it, even if you ever got bad grades in your history classes! You'll be amazed.

simply the best

Comments about PBS American Experience: New York: A Documentary Film by Ric Burns DVD 8PK:

This multi episode documentary is simply the best program i have ever seen on television. The stories, the character voices, the music, the drama, all are beyond excellent. the last episode, about the history of the World Trade Center, is the most captivating story of them all and i watch and listen for three full hours and then want to play it again. Thanks to PBS and Ric Burns for such a great production.
