The BBC's adaptation of John Wyndham's classic novel has been hailed as an atmospheric, gripping and faithful production. The brainchild of Blake's 7 producer David Maloney, this post-apocalyptic series was broadcast in 1981, when fears of a nuclear Armageddon were at their height. The series generated cult appeal that had the longevity to be considered an influence on 2002's 28 Days Later. Following the Earth's close encounter with a comet, a meteor shower strikes Britain's population blind. Bill Masen, recovering in a London hospital from a vicious plant attack, is one of a few to survive with eyesight intact. The world he emerges into has already terrifyingly altered. The government has collapsed, bands of renegades are thriving in the anarchy - and a hostile, carnivorous form of plant life, the Triffids, have begun to prey on the weakened and vulnerable human population. For Masen, life is now a desperate struggle...
