Retrogram #8160: Blake’s 7 – A User’s Guide

1978-1981: With Britbox (and Forces TV in the UK) bringing Blake’s 7 back to everyone’s screens, Retrogram presents a unique, “focus episode” to provide the show’s historical context, its literary and pop culture inspirations, its influence on what came after it, and an even-handed look at the pros and cons of the show…all without spoiling all of the show’s big surprises (and they are legion).  Also, find out which Babylon 5 regular cast member had a role in a Terry Nation project!  (47:38)

Content warning: brief plot-relevant mention of sexual assault, assault on minors
