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.

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

I was shipped the wrong item, then the reshipment was lost, but finally I received the DVD set on the third attempt. The content in these DVDs makes up for the shipping ineptitude. This is a great visual history of NYC with interesting commentary from a variety of New Yorkers.

A Masterpiece

By Richard

from San Francisco

Verified Reviewer

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.
