4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Sanjay Iyer on May 9, 2010
I really enjoyed watching "ABC 2000 Today." For 26 hours, Peter Jennings anchored and Roger Goodman directed what the BBC called "the most ambitious live TV broadcast ever." I watched ABC's original broadcast and really enjoyed it. I also realized that "ABC 2000" is also "ABC 2000 Today" because ABC, BBC, and other international broadcasters (like the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)) pooled their expertise with the BBC and helped the BBC with their coverage.

This DVD condenses the 24 hours into 2 1/2 hours of highlights.

"ABC 2000 Today" is a good memento not just for now, but for many years to come not only because it's the only time in our lifetimes will we ever see a new year like this-seeing a new year dawn, a new century, and a new millennium-but also see an ambitious live TV broadcast like this-operation involving around 60 satellite paths, several thousand kilometers of fiber optic cable, and over 2,000 cameras, according to the BBC. Because of this, we saw every event, not just the fireworks displays, but also commentary, guests, and others talking to Mr. Jennings about the millennium.

I think that ABC and PBS both blended their coverage together because of this broadcast group. There are 2 people outside of ABC we should be grateful for: Dick Clark for being part of "ABC 2000 Today," so that he could his traditional New Year's Eve countdown in Times Square, which was televised around the world, even on the BBC (CBC had a taped playback of the Times Square celebration because they televised simultaneous celebrations in Toronto, Hull, Quebec, and Ottawa), and Zvi Dor-Ner, an executive producer at PBS affilliate WGBH-TV in Boston, which co-produced the BBC's coverage, for having the vision for 2000 Today.

Verified Purchase
All of the news media covered the millennium events around the world. It was the first time that the whole world could celebrate the change of the century together. But ABC News' coverage was far better than the other networks or news agencies. They interviewed scientists and educators on various aspects related to the world as it is now, how it was, and where we are going. They discussed the concepts of time, the impact of technology on our world, (including the Y2K issue), our aging population, and peoples' reaction to the celebration, as well as covering many national midnight events. It's an anthology of the world at a particular point in time - the year 2000.
