MADE-FOR-TV MULTIPART marathon of a miniseries, based on the novel of the same name by Alex Haley (and later subjected to “falsification of family history” accusations by both The Times and a BBC documentary). LE VAR “STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION” BURTON played the young Kunte Kynte, a name made for endless classroom bandying (“But it was on the telly last night, miss, I heard it!) and GEORGE STANFORD BROWN was the narrator, Tom, tracing his… erm, roots back to slavery days. Also starred LLOYD “I picked a fine day to give up smoking” BRIDGES and O.J. “I picked a fine day to give up stabbing people” SIMPSON.
