Survivors TV Series 1975 – 1977 – who remembers this?

Anyone remember watching Survivors on tv in the 70’s? Wikipedia says… It concerns the plight of a group of people who have survived an apocalyptic plague pandemic, which was accidentally released by a Chinese scientist and quickly spread across the world via air travel.

Barry Hilton… Yes, absolutely freaked me out, but watched all of it!

Allyson Breeds… I’m gonna play the part of Jenny, she (I think) was the only character to last from episode 1 to the final episode!

Steve Thorpe… Remember this, art mimicking life at the moment!

Martin Richter… “and the band played on* is similar – stay safe x

Judy Atkinson… Remember this well

Peter Brazier… I don’t know how I missed this but I did! 😲 scary coincidence? I DON’T BELIVE IN COINCIDENCES!

Nick Shute… I remember this…was disappointed that there wasn’t a follow up series…..last episode ended with two of a group heading into the unknown in a hot air ballon…..featured a young Brian Blessed character called ‘Brun’ or ‘Bryan’ ?

Tim Moose Bruce… .think they did an up to date version a few years ago.

Nick Shute… yep…think the same thing happened again…..was meant to have another series that failed to happen …

Reid Mc… Nick, it ran for several seasons

Sophie Ash… The Seventies was a bit schizo. It had it’s Glam/Fun/Sex side but it also had it’s Ecology/Intellectualist/Dystopia-Fear side.

Andy James Long… I remember this, we used to watch the latest episode in college during our free study, or whatever it was called, period. Had a cool lecturer!

Judie Struys… Me too. I thought of it when I first heard about the spread of covid19.

Reid Mc…. This was an interesting series to start with. Once the survivors had established a community it became rather dull. Apart from one or two stories dealing with interesting ethical issues, it rapidly deteriorated into a sort of cozy post apocalyptic version of The Archers. Fascinating if looms or goat husbandry are your thing…

John Harper… Yep, remember it well but couldn’t recall the title. The present plague reminded me of it!

Peter Houghton… Yes i did it was a brilliant series well done

Jo Avery… Have all 3 series on DVD, the half keeps saying we should re watch it, I’d rather wait till this has passed!Great series, but very funny listening to everyone speaking so poshly as they did back then!

Alan Pepper… Same as me I don’t believe in coincidences either – how weird !!
