Also, 3.5 % Quidco to be had!

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.

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!

The Complete Roots Collection: Original Series 30th Anniversary Edition / Roots The Gift TV Special / The Next Generation
Hot from me, especially since pretty much everything I know about the American enslavery comes from watching this in history class when I was 13.

Random trivia: The actor that played Kunta Kintae is the same guy that played Geordi La Forge in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Seeing that it's the same price at a number of other retailers take your pick! It still doesn't take away from the fact that it is a scorching hot deal irrespective of where we purchase it from!

If people vote this cold on the basis of more Quidco somewhere else then all I can say is that such ones must be sad penny pinching people. Remember Quidco is only bonus!
Essential must see drama!
Dont forget Roots the next Genaration after watching this.
Great series.

But hugely made-up/plagiarised story.
