Why Roots on BBC4 is a must watch for everyone.

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?
