Insignia/ESG sponsors NY film documentary.

Insignia/ESG, Inc. has signed on as a local underwriter for Thirteen/WNET's tristate broadcast of one of its major fall series, "New York: A Documentary Film", joining other corporate powerhouses like Chase Manhattan Corporation, Bell Atlantic, Bloomberg News and The Ford Foundation.

The 12-hour series on the history and significance of New York City will be presented on PBS as a special presentation of "The American Experience" starting on November 14th. Produced by Steeplechase Films, in association with WGBH Boston, the program traces New York's remarkable rise, from the arrival of the Dutch in the early 17th Century to the present day.

Stephen B. Siegel, Insignia/ESG's president and CEO, said "New York City is the world's prime real estate market, and we feel that investing in 'New York: A Documentary Film' echoes the spirit of our business."

"We're very pleased that these companies have chosen to be part of the New York experience," said Audrey Koota, Thirteen's executive director of marketing. "This series highlights the city's role at the epicenter of national an international business. These companies epitomize the corporate clout - and citizenship - that make these New York-based firms true leaders."

Among the many great aspects of New York's development documented in the series are the creation and rise of Wall Street; the influence of businessmen and financiers - from Alexander Hamilton to Donald Trump - in building New York's power base; and New York's role as a focal point of trade and business - from its inception to the virtual creation of modern journalism, publishing and advertising.

Thirteen/WNET New York is one of the key program providers for public television, bringing such acclaimed series as "Nature", "Great Performances," "American Master Religion & Ethics," "News Weekly," "Charlie Rose," and the "Work of Bill Moyers" to audiences nationwide. As the leading public broadcaster in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut metro area, Thirteen reaches millions of viewers each week and airs the best of American public television, along with its own local productions.
