Terry Nation’s drama series Survivors, broadcast by the BBC between 1975 to 1977, was one of the most popular series of the decade. Set in a post-apocalyptic, present day world ravaged by a devastating plague, Survivors explored how humanity would cope in a world stripped of modern technology and comforts.
The disease struck quickly and with devastating effect – a global plague that, in Britain, spares just a few thousand people. This is the chilling story of some of those who survive — Jenny, Greg, Abby and others — determined to construct a new community from the surrounding wasteland where the technology and skills of the old life have become obsolete.
