NEW YORK: A DOCUMENTARY FILM 9.30pm, ABC

WEEK in, week out, Australians patrol the streets of New York in such TV fictions as Law and Order, NYPD Blue, Sex and the City and Seinfeld.

So, couch potatoes and history buffs alike should find this five-part documentary about the Big Apple very tasty indeed.

The producer of this wonderfully absorbing series, Ric Burns, had a hand in his brother Ken Burns' internationally acclaimed documentary epic The Civil War.

Five years in the making, New York: A Documentary Film uses a similarly crafty combination of contemporary footage, archival images and eloquent talking heads (historians, architects, actors, artists and writers) to explore the origins of `the supreme laboratory of modern life'.

David Ogden Stiers is the narrator.
