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!

"It's mah favourite programme" -- Andrew Collins.

That's a good enough endorsement for me. Voted hot.

White Europeans running around with chains in Africa in the 1700s?
Don't think so they did not even know where the source of the Nile was
"British explorers Richard Francis Burton and John Hanning Speke have been credited with the discovery of the source of the White Nile. On July 30, 1858" :whistling:
