Trivia

The state in which the series takes place is never identified by name, nor through any identifying characteristics. Characters refer to counties rather than parishes, thus eliminating Louisiana. Characters also speak of Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia, and Mississippi, thus presumably eliminating them. We later learn that Forrest works in the Fifth District. If this refers to the Fifth Circuit of Courts, then the setting is most likely Georgia, as every other state in that district has been referred to. See more »

Please release this on DVD.
15 March 2008 | by tbstuytownSee all my reviews

Every week I check the new DVD releases with hopes of seeing "I'll Fly Away." It's amazing what's available while "I'll Fly Away" sits on a shelf. The above comment describes it perfectly. It's history and entertainment. It could be used in schools when discussing the civil rights movement. In my opinion it's the best TV ever. PLEASE release this on DVD and market it so people watch it. This is an important series that should be seen. I almost bought this on line but something didn't seem right since I knew it not to be available. I called the company selling it and a person on the phone actually told me the quality is not too good and that it was recorded from T.V. Well, I did the same thing on VHS. I want high quality, complete set on DVD.
