                I've had Awakening Land on my Tivo watch list forever with no luck. I saw part of the series 30 some years ago and finally found it here. The DVDs played perfectly. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the complete series and with no interruptions by commercials. Buy this DVD series and you will not be disappointed. I can't say enough good things about it.

                    Watched this on TV when it first came out and have read the books many times. I couldn't wait to get the DVD and watch it again. I graduated high school with the girl who played Miss Bartram so it meant quite a bit to me. She passed away in the '80s and this is one of her very good roles. I just loved the whole series.....great acting and dialogue.

                    Looked for this series for 30+ years and was delighted to finally find it. The books the series was adapted from are a wonderful read and although the series didn't follow the books exactly, the series was close enough to capture the spirit of the times.
