Roots - The Complete Series
  • Description

    30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
    His name was Kunta Kinte. Kidnapped from Africa enslaved in America in 1767, he refused to accept his slave name Toby. Heirs kept his heroic defiance alive, passing on his tale across generations until it reached a young boy growing up in Tennessee. His name was Alex Haley. Through the lineage of one family, Haley and his Pulitzer Prize - winning Roots told a story for all America and the world. Seen by 130 million viewers during its premiere telecast and the winner of dozens of awards, the David L. Wolper production remains an engrossing entertainment 30 years later. Embark on an unforgettable DVD journey.

    THE NEXT GENERATIONS
    Could there be a worthy follow-upto the most-watched miniseries ever? "We felt the other did so well," Alex Haley said, " that we should just let it hang there." But Alex began carrying around a tape recorder, dictating more of his family's tales as they came to his memory. Those remembrances filled 1,000-page transcript: raw material got Roots: The Next Generations.

    Winner of the Emmy for Best Limited Series, this landmark continuation of a landmark event - with 53 stars and 235 speaking parts - "is in many respects a superior achievement," Newsweek said in comparing this to Roots. Even now, it has lost none of its dramatic and emotional power to make us confront history and examine ourselves. One man's family remains everyone's!

    Includes ROOTS: THE GIFT.

Roots - The Complete Series is a good set. Good delivery.

Fantastic

One of the greatest box-sets i have even seen great story with much joy, sadness and understanding in this spectacular drama . This explains the hardships of the life of Kunta Kinte and his descendants who went through slavery, post-civil war era, 1900s and modern civil rights era.

Roots

It was great to be able to watch the entire series in DVD some 30 years after the original screening. The quality of the images was excellent, surpassed only by the story itself. Great viewing and the cost incredible cheap. Certainly excellent value for money..

brilliant to watch

how wonderful to watch this excellent series that I watched all those years ago on TV with the family, eagerly waiting for the next episode. would recommend this to everyone. A novelty also to have double sided dvd play. A sad and moving story of courage that you will be glad you watched
