Product Details

Product Description

Winning nine Emmys and viewed by more than 130 million Americans, the NBC mini-series ROOTS greatly impacted American views of slavery and the black experience. It was followed by this massive 14-hour mini-series two years later later in 1979. Although not as popular as the original, this series did garner high ratings and earned an Emmy for Marlon Brando and a nomination for Ruby Dee. Beginning in 1882 where the original series left off, this epic tale follows the African-American experience after the slaves were freed, but when their opportunities were still greatly limited. The journey takes the audience through the life of writer Alex Haley (played by James Earl Jones), including a dramatic concluding episode studying the influence of Malcolm X, and Haley's discovery of Kunta Kinte.

I have watched all them. Plus the new generation of Roots. Excellent move when it came out and still has so much meaning even in todays lifestyle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roots - the next generation April 14 2013

After I had gone through that series, I felt I had a better understanding of an era I was not fully aware of and was somewhat embarressed at what they had endured in what I thought was a civilized country.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series even many years after it was filmed. Definitely a classic and history to pass on and share.

Very bad image quality.
DVD had no label on them so you should guess which one is which.
The stories narrated deserve a lot much more: Shameful!!

It is history, & something that shouldn't be forgotten. Well done for 1977. I enjoyed this mini-series & will keep it for a long time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sound Quality Jan. 3 2013
There are 6 DVDs with this collection. The parcel always arrives on time and in good shape. When I began watchin the first DVD the actors would be talking but no sound; then a few moments later you would hear what they were discussing. The same thing happened with disk 2 and disk 4 the entire disk was off que.
Then there were conversations on the last disk by the director/author/producer with no sound what so ever.

Never in the more than 700 DVDs that I own have I ever encountered such poor quality.

However; I brought the matter up with Amazon who returned my purchase price when I would have liked another copy.

Has anyone elese experienced this issue with this movie?
