DYING IS EASY, SURVIVING IS HARD...
First shown on BBC TV in the mid 1970s, this series was conceived by the late great Sci-Fi genius Terry Nation (inventor of Dr Who's greatest enemy The Daleks). Screened during the height of the Cold War period the plot was chilling and consequently gripped the nation's imagination.
"..Series 1 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. The action follows the experiences of three principal survivors: headstrong housewife Abby Grant (Carolyn Seymour - Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager, Quantum Leap), enigmatic engineer Greg Preston (Ian McCulloch - Zombie Flesh Eaters, Contamination, Doctor Who) and London secretary Jenny Richards (Lucy Fleming - The Avengers, Smiley's People, Wycliffe).
Survivors 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 interdependence; and the sudden significance of self-sufficiency."
The Survivors attempts to carve out an existance in their new and desolate world are absorbing and unforgettable.
