It took way too long for the Remake of Alex Haley's Roots to hit the UK and then only to be aired on BBC4. When I first heard about it I was not impressed. The original was one of those things like 'Star Wars' woven into my past that should not be messed with. How could they improve on what was at the time and remains today one of the best TV shows of all time?
Africa is on fire! Right now in Africa fires are blazing out of control. In Angola and DRC thousands of fires are burning out of control. The facts are that Brazil is only 3rd in the world over the last 48 hours in wildfires.
