    1976's The Adams Chronicles is one of the finest pieces of broadcast drama I've ever seen. With all the renewed interest in American history and the John Adams biography having been a best-seller, how about this fine mini-series on DVD.
    It was originally produced by WNET; don't know who currently holds the rights.
    Anyone else remember this?
    Cheers

    All Creatures Large and Small is my all-time favorite PBS Series. I will probably buy the DVD set. I could watch these episodes over and over again.
