    Why are you asking the same question four times about a non britis h film?

          It is listed on that website as a program that aired on BBC, I'm wondering has anyone seen it or can locate any recordings of the program.

        Is that the one that exposed him as a fraud?

          There was, indeed, a programme called The Roots of Alex Haley. It was an episode of the BBC2 series Bookmark, transmitted 13th September 1997:

          Alex Haley 's Roots was one of the biggest-selling books of the century and became a hugely successful television series. But soon afterthe book hit the shelves there were accusations of fraud and, after Haley died, articles supporting this stance appeared in the New York newspaper Village Voice. This programme examines the truth behind Roots and asks whether, given the work's cultural significance, these charges really mattered.


          From the Genome site. Some more info: The programme was repeated many times on the digital channel BBC Knowledge between 2000-2001.
