Every New Yorker should see these DVD's. What great presentation of historical data through photo's, video clips, and narration. Its a very enlightening way to convey history. One will never think of NYC in the same way!

A Masterpiece

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

Ric Burns (Ken's brother) does a masterful job. This should be required viewing in middle/high school history classes. David Ogden Stiers' narration is the best I've ever heard. The music completes the package to make this one of, if not the, finest documentaries ever produced.

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

I love this program. I ordered it from "Shop PBS" and began watching it just prior to taking my first ever trip to NYC. Now that I've returned home from the Big Apple, I've continued to watch episodes of this series; it feels even more relevant than ever. I recommend this documentary to anyone who has an interest in the incredible history of New York City.

Best Documentary I've Ever Seen

By Angela

from Los Angeles, CA

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

Even compared to such greats as Ken Burns' Civil War, this is the finest documentary I've seen. It's beautifully made, highly informative and tells a very very human story of New York.
