Series Description

Hosted by Eric Sevareid. ENTERPRISE's pioneering use of the "case study" approach to business documents high level decisions as they are taking place in the executive boardrooms. ENTERPRISE deliberately shows decision making processes as they occur. Business is treated as a human endeavor rather than an economic phenomenon. It goes beyond the statistics and charts to show real people making critical decisions and then bearing the consequences. ENTERPRISE benefits from the expertise of the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration (as Harvard professors act as advisors to each program.)

Program Description

Hosted by Eric Sevareid. ENTERPRISE chronicles the drilling of a gas well in Louisiana Cajun country by a wildcat oil and gas operator. The program underscores the risk and tension inherent in drilling and also tells the larger story of our national energy search.
