The New Yorker on TV: A Brilliant Production
There is nothing else like this series. It has all the panache of the magazine condensed into a visually stunning television program. The production values are particularly astonishing. Alex Gibney, as the producer, has found a beautiful marriage with The New Yorker. Even the opening credits are a delight. All the various elements of the hard copy are there at some point - though in each episode they are fewer and more concise - and one hopes that ultimately it will entice viewers to go deeper with a subscription. The New Yorker Magazine is a true treasure that must survive and the TV and radio versions should help to introduce the content to a wider audience. Bravo!
