Ric Burns, Director, Writer (with James Sanders), and Producer (with Lisa Ades Ep 1-5) of NEW YORK, a seventeen and a half hour series on the history of New York City.

The producers of NEW YORK: A DOCUMENTARY FILM, Ric Burns, James Sanders and Steeplechase Films, wish to note with sadness the passing of our beloved and esteeme. d colleague, David Ogden Stiers, who narrated every episode of our eight-part public television series on the history of New York City. From the series' very first moments to the end of the eighth episode, David's powerful and distinctive, lucid, subtly expressive-proved essential to establishing the special tone and character of the film

Ric Burns (brother of the famed documentarian Ken Burns) presents an exhaustive history of New York City from the settling of the area by the Dutch to the attack by terrorists nearly 400 years later. Told in a sentimental tone, Burns weaves a lyrical tale of the great metropolis that encompasses not only the city's streets, but also that of the history of America  . The period of 1825 to 1865 in the history on New York City is narrated by David Ogden Stiers. We see the rise of the city as a cultural centre, to influx of blacks, Italians and Germans.

In 2015, Burns directed and produced a documentary for PBS about the American Ballet Theater. There is one inherent problem with doing a film about ballet. It does not withstand recording," Burns says. The magic of it is that it's happening in real time and then over. So if you want to make a film of it, you're, by definition, trying to put something into a can. You're trying to bottle lightning. To try to catch that lightning in a bottle, Burns shot the dancers up close and fast, then slowed down the footage. Ric Burns is perhaps best known for his opus, "New York: A Documentary Film. Four hundred years of New York history in eight episodes, almost 18 hours.
