In 1977 the mini-series Roots touched and inspired a nation... its effects can still be felt today.Based on Alex Haley's best-selling novel about his African ancestors, Roots followed several generations in the lives of a slave family. The saga began with Kunta Kinte (LeVar Burton), a West African youth captured by slave raiders and shipped to America in the 1700s. The family's saga is depicted up until the Civil War where Kunte Kinte's grandson gained emancipation. Roots made its greatest impression on the ratings and widespread popularity it garnered. On average, 130 million - almost half the country at the time - saw all or part of the series.

    Great product and value
    This is a great series, of course. Most reviews for this product concern the format. The series has been produced in a double sided disc format, with poor reviews for quality. These are NOT double sided discs. I have no problem with playback in my blue ray player, and the quality is fine. Would highly recommend this product.
