Concieved by Terry Nation (the creator of the 'Daleks' and 'Blake's 7'), 'Survivors' is a groundbreaking and startlingly realistic television drama series. First aired in 1975 at the height of the cold war, 'Survivors' post-apocalyptic storylines immediately gripped the imagination of the British public and remain compelling to this day. The first series of thirteen episodes charts the onset and aftermath of a virulent plague that wipes out 99.9% of the world's population and the struggles of a lone group of survivors during the privations that follow. This action series follows the experiences of three principal survivors: headstrong housewife Abby Grant (Carolyn Seymour), enigmatic engineer Greg Preston (Ian McCulloch), and London secretary Jenny Richards (Lucy Flemming). Combines traditional adventure storytelling with a fascinating exploration of the social and cultural impact of the apocalypse: the absence of law and order; the importance of community and inter-dependence; and the sudden significance of self-sufficiency. The survivors' attempts to carve out an existence in their new and desolate world are absorbing and unforgettable. 13 episodes.
