Cygnus Alpha: Down and Safe 25/05/2020

CYGNUS ALPHA DOWN AND SAFE

Spring Bank Holiday Monday 25th of May

Starting at Midday (BST)

A collection of newly record Zoom chats with cast and crew members from the BBC TV Series, Blake’s 7.

Cygnus Alpha: London in 2019 was our last ever Blake's 7 event. Or so we thought!

After being inspired and encouraged by people putting together online virtual conventions, we felt that we could and should do something. We have made contact with many different people from the world of Blake's 7 and beyond and have chatted to them about their memories of Blake's 7 and much more, including home made jam, stinging nettles and just how does Zoom work?

Each guest has given up their time for free and we are so grateful to them all. All we ask is that you make a small donation to the charity mentioned at the end of the video.

All videos will be released on our YouTube channel (don't forget to like and subscribe) from midday on the 25th of May.

Details of who is taking part is being kept secret for the time being but we shall release details each day for one of the videos at 6pm starting on Monday. But that's not all!

Tweet Along

After the final interview has been broadcast, we shall be starting a tweet along to the last episode of Blake's 7, 'Blake'. This will include one or two surprises and will start at 7pm BST. The hashtag will be #DownandSafe. You can find and follow us on Twitter. Search for @CygnusTweets and follow us

Oh, thankyou soooo much for this!!I was feeling a bit disappointed that ‘Forever Avon’ has had to be (completely understandably) postponed, this has made my day!

Thankyou so much for taking the time to arrange this, and for thinking of us B7 fans during this difficult time!
