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.

I really want to buy this - I am slightly confused though, there are 4 versions of Roots on Play.com which are the best to buy?

Obviously I want the original mini-series & the later 'Generations' but which should I get from Play? Any advice would be greatly appreciated thanks guys & girls!

This set is not complete but just a mini series edition with 2 disks. You may like to buy the complete set with 9 disks from http://www.mydvdcentre.com/shop.php?i=B000W70GY6. It is for £17.99 but offers a much better value.

Alternatively, you could buy the complete region 1 set with 10 disks from http://www.amazon.com/Roots-Complete-Collection-Next-Generations/dp/B000T22Q9W. Price is $ 85.99 plus postage to UK + custom duties (if caught).
