Description

The landmark 12-hour miniseries that changed the face of television is now available on iTunes. Based on Alex Haley's Pulitzer Prize-winning book about his own ancestors, this historic programming event — still the highest-rated miniseries in TV history — is a stirring, sweeping saga of one family's unforgettable struggle over many generations to survive slavery and regain freedom. In 1750, slave traders abduct the proud African warrior Kunta Kinte (LeVar Burton) and a new American story begins. Forged in blood, sweat, and tears, a dream of freedom sustains Kunta and his descendants through more than a century of hardship and oppression. Cicely Tyson, Edward Asner, John Amos, Louis Gossett Jr., Lloyd Bridges, Leslie Uggams, and Ben Vereen, among others, also star in this groundbreaking historical epic. Providing eloquent witness to the indomitable human spirit, this internationally acclaimed series reveals untold cultural riches to all of humanity from one man's personal family history. Roots was the winner of nine Emmy® Awards and the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award.

Excellent tv series, £10.99 is pricy though & the synopsis states "The landmark 12-hour miniseries" however it's only 9.5 hour long! A little misleading!
