There seems to be one episode available
http://www.paleycenter.org/collection/item/?q=from+these+roots&f=all&c=all&advanced=1&p=1&item=B:02159
It is dated June 30 1958. That would be the shows first episode.

Some facts about the show.

It was owned and produced by Proctor and Gamble who sold the show to NBC not long before they cancelled it.

Joe Mascolo and Millette Alexander(GL and Edge) both appeared on it.

Barbara Berjer(GL and AW) played an alcoholic actress named Lynn Franklin. From all recollections online she was absolutely astounding in the part.

Susan Brown(Gail on GH) subbed for Ann Flood while she was on maternity leave.

According to an article that was in SOD years ago an actress (Julie Bovasso) quit her role minutes before the show was to go on the air (live) so they got someone in the crew to stand in for her.

John Pickard and Frank Provo the shows creators quit the show a year before its cancellation after a disagreement with NBC. It has also been said they were "fired" because P&G discovered they were gay. They also created the short-lived soap Concerning Miss Marlowe which aired on NBC from 1954-1955 (and sounded just as interesting as FTR).
