A pandemic wipes out modern society as we know it, leaving a small group of people facing life in a desolate Britain in Terry Nation’s downbeat and thought-provoking ‘70s drama.

Original Survivors in Sky’s top post-apocalyptic shows

Sky TV’s celebration of six of the top post-apocalyptic shows features the original Survivors (alongside The Walking Dead, Firefly, Red Dwarf, The Day of the Triffids, and Battlestar Galactica (original series)).
