Diamond Game, The
Program Number


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.) Ex Prod: Zvi Dor-Ner / Each individual episode has different producer Series release date: 10/1981

Program Description

Hosted by Eric Sevareid. EP joins William Goldberg, the shrewd effervescent president of the Diamond Dealers Club, as he assesses rough stones and their potential value once they have been shaped. Rough diamonds come from DeBeers Consolidated Mines of South Africa, which for the past 80 years has been controlled 3/4 of all rough stones mined in the world. Goldberg negotiates the purchase of two stones from the vice president of the New York jewelry concern, Harry Winston, Inc.
