| Greatest TV movie ever!
I was caught off guard when I found out later on that this was a TV movie!If this is so,then it may be the greatest TV movie I have ever seen.This was very uncompromising and really dealt with as much realism as can be depicted all the while keeping the audience entertained and enthralled.Splendid casting and directing as well.I highly recommend this film to anybody who really wants to learn the circumstances regarding the Columbus journeys and the repercussions it created in Europe and the new world.Done in the uncompromising tradition and style of "Roots".Not for typical Hollywood formula fans.For this reason,mainstream has kept this classic in the closet so to speak.Bravo!
