    Wow-I am not sure if this was the first mini-series, but it certainly was the first one that I ever saw. I don't recall this ever being available on LD. This was very influential in my upbringing and I will definitely purchase it.

    this may be the best news I've heard yet!
    I have almost purchased the vhs edition sooooo many times hoping beyond hope that a DVD edition will someday be available.
    Roots is my favorite mini but now that it seems to be taken care of, lets have Shogun (referring to other thread!!)

    I recall that this was one of the first mini-series to get blockbuster ratings. One of the reasons was that there was a major blizzard here in the Midwest and a lot of people couldn't go anywhere. So we stayed home and watched Roots.

    Thanks for the info Jeff.
