Roots: The Next Generations Box Set Brown, Georg Stanford (Actor, Director), Doyle, Kathleen (Actor), Dubin, Charles S. (Director), Erman, John (Director) Rated: NR Format: DVD Product Description Roots: The Next Generations (DVD) Could there be a worthy follow-up to the most-watched miniseries ever? “We felt the other did so well,” Alex Haley said, “that we should just let it hang there.” But Haley began carrying around a tape recorder, dictating more of his family’s tales as they came to his memory. Those remembrances filled a 1,000-page transcript: raw material for Roots: The Next Generations. Winner of the Emmy for Best Limited Series, this landmark continuation of a landmark event – with 53 stars and 235 speaking parts – “is in many respects a superior achievement,” Newsweek said in comparing this to Roots. Twenty-five years later, it has lost none of its dramatic and emotional power to make us confront history and examine ourselves. One man’s family remains everyone’s!
