I am a white male,48 years old,happily married going on nineteen years with five children and six grandchildren.I was born in the state of Texas,and raised to befriend people based on their actions-not the color of their skin.I,like most people,have been influenced often times by what has been taught through traditions or hearsay instead of facts,because facts often times takes some effort to discover.
I have just recently read the book Roots,and was so overcome by a multitude of aroused emotions I purchased the mini-series on DVD.My wife,children and I viewed the movies together,and have had many wonderful discussions since.It has been my experience to find movies made from books usually deficient,and so altered to make for 'better viewing' I often have some trepidation of giving my time to them.Roots was/is such a refreshing surprise in that both the movie(s) and the book are so very close in keeping with the original materials.
Mr. Alex Haley was truely a gifted person in his ability to share a story.I only wish he were yet still alive,so I could personally write him a note expressing my profound graditude in his taking the time to educate,entertain and awaken in me a compassion for a people I only thought I knew.
There is brief frontal nudity which may offend some,but in keeping with cultural historical accuracy is but a small negative in a wealth of positives.The casting and acting is above excellence.I could go on with much more accolades,but then I would be writing a novel and not a review.Read more ›
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?

Loved it. Had never seen it on tv so had to buy it and watch it at my own pace and fully satisfied.Published on Sept. 21 2013 by huguette perron
I thoroughly enjoyed this series even many years after it was filmed. Definitely a classic and history to pass on and share.Published on June 28 2013 by Simone
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!!
