Best Ever BBC Production,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Survivors - Series 1-3 Box Set [DVD]  (DVD)
At it's best, Survivors 1975 - 77 is the most realistic series the BBC has ever made - dumping the incidental music & replacing it with the natural sounds of birdsong etc was probably an economy measure - but it was a very good move.
At it's worst, probably "The Witch" & "The Peacemaker" episodes are still more entertaining & thought provoking than most modern TV.
The acting is natural & far from perfect, but even more realistic because of it - the diction is very good. Special mentions go to Lucy Fleming, Carolyn Seymour, Denis Lil & Ian McCulloch, also the late Celia Gregory.
Please buy & enjoy, then use what influence you can muster - to persuade modern Broadcasters to produce material of this quality.
The only thing lacking in Survivors is the technical 16/9 clarity that a modern production can bring.
