I've seen this posted for £11.99. After a quick search found this deal.

Also available is http://www.zavvi.com/dvd/roots-the-complete-series/9983851.html £12.99

Which includes the 30th anniversary edition and the 2nd Generation, which continues the story.

I remember watching the whole this as a Kid on TV. Great series, and from reviews still watchable today.

His name was Kunta Kinte.

Kidnapped from Africa and enslaved in America in 1767, he refused to accept his slave name of 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 telecasts 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.,

Great series, however using it for educational purpose is going a bit to far. This can no way mirror what it was like in those days.

*Steps on orange box*

Whilst I think the original series was an eye opener for many at the time it should never be presented as a work of historical fact. Alex Haley had to pay out hundreds of thousands of dollars in settlement for plagiarism to another author that he stole over 80 complete passages from his book. There is also evidence that he cannot trace his ancestry back and that most of the book was ghost written by a white man.

As a story it had some merits, and had he produced it as a work of fiction , without the plagiarism, then it would have been just that - a work of fiction. The fact he presented it as truth and it was supposedly proved by records through history that he had found, (Which actually prove the opposite), means that Alex Hayley has forever tarnished the story.

So for that reason it should not be viewed as anything other than a fictional story and should never be presented as a historical text in schools.

I have just been off and found this Article that goes into more depth

Sorry!

Still a bloody good series though.

Good series but you would be better off showing '12 Years a Slave' in schools as a historical document.

​Yeah, maybe Michael Brown would still be alive and the police officer whose gun he was trying to take would be dead in his place...
