This is the story of the evolution of the town Centennial, Colorado. It follows the paths of dozens of people who come to the area for many reasons: money, freedom, or crime. It also shows the bigoted treatment of the Native Indians by the advancing U.S. colonists. It is topped off with a murder mystery that takes one hundred years to solve.Written by

The ranch that was used as the Venneford Mansion was the Highlands Ranch Mansion, located on Highlands Ranch, which is near the real-life town of Centennial, Colorado. Several years after this miniseries was shot, the property was developed for housing by the Mission Veijo Company. One of the streets within the development was named Venneford Ranch Road by the company as a tribute to the miniseries. See more »

This was originally shown on the NBC network in twelve separate episodes, with the first and last each running three hours and the ten in between at two hours each (this is with commercials). Some basic cable channels have rerun it in thirteen two-hour segments, with all but the opening and closing episodes consisting of the last hour of one segment and the first hour of the next.

When looking up what Timothy Dalton had done over the years I saw Centennial in the list... immediately it brought back a lot of memories. I saw the series when I was 12 years old and I was very impressed with it. The way Pasquinel ventured out alone into the unknown and made a living by trading beaver skins, the way he meets his indian wife, the friendship he develops with Alexander McKeag, The honest Levi Zendt, the great cattle drive... after all those years those things are still in my memory and I recommend this series to everyone who has a chance of seeing it.
I hope they put it on DVD because this is one series I would really like to show to my children, I am sure they would love it just as much as I did back then.
