Tuesday, 12 June 2012

"Roots." "Shogun." "Rich Man, Poor Man." "The Thorn Birds." "North and South." "Gulliver's Travels." Those classic broadcast network miniseries from the 1970s, '80s and '90s made for marquee television. They were multi-night programming events that drew people to their TVs in numbers unachievable today outside televised sporting events. They won awards for their networks.
