Cities (Miniseries) (1979-1980)

Cities was a thirteen week series of one hour documentaries, produced and directed by John McGreevy for Nielsen-Ferns. Each program featured an international celebrity who led viewers around a city that was his or her favourite, home, or a place with which he or she had a significant connection. Glenn Gould, for example, prepared the program on Toronto, while Peter Ustinov showed viewers Leningrad, Elie Wiesell presented Jerusalem, George Plimpton was the host for New York City, and Mai Zetterling prepared a film on Stockholm.
