  • Notes

    • LeVar Burton has noted that it took 2 takes, done 3 days apart, to film the final version of the whip scene where his character Kunte Kinte was strung up with a rope and whipped in order to force him to say his new name "Toby". This was because during the initial take, he would instinctively flinch each time the whip was about to make contact. After spending time with the expert whip handler and observing some of the handler's show performances, they were finally able to successfully film what would become the final cut of the scene.
