I have been researching and searching and no one can answer my question. I have faith in your guys' keen memories, so maybe you can help: The miniseries Roots ran for eight consecutive nights in Jan. of 1977. The dvd version (and all subsequent broadcasts and video releases) is six parts. Now I know no footage has been cut, but I am wondering about the end credits each night. The opening credits contain the names of the actors for the entire two hours....but I was wondering if the show was simply cut into two halves for each of the four hour long broadcasts, and if so, were the closing credits for two hours simply shown after the first and second hours each time? The end credits feature the names of all the performers for two hours, so I am assuming they just reran the same end titles both nights. Also, the Friday night broadcast took the second hour of what is now Episode 4 and ran it as the first of two hours, with the second hour being the first hour of what is now Episode 5 (got that...lol)...so on that night, were the end titles moved from the first hour to the end of the second hour? I am not trying to confuse anyone, and wish for only serious replies to my question....please help all of you tv lovers! I am trying to piece together part of televsion history...Everyone remembers the show, but these little details have been forgotten.
