Sadly, the Dr. Strange pilot aired opposite ROOTS--and went largely unnoticed. Don't know if it's available on DVD.
Roots was on in 1977, the Dr. Strange movie came out in 1978 and it was released on tape.
was broadcast on CBS on Wednesday, September 6, 1978 [http://twitchfilm.com/news/2011/10/m...in-america.php
in prime time in September 1978 [http://jfredmacdonald.com/bawtv/bawtv17.htm
At this point, I haven't found the exact date of the Roots
rebroadcast, but it certainly seems plausible that Greg Cox
is correct. However, I know for a fact that Dr. Strange
was broadcast on TV in 1978, because that's the only time I ever saw it.
