- Blake's 7 News
Until then, you can still catch consecutive episodes of Blake's 7 Monday to Thursdays at approx. 8.45-8.55pm, repeated the following morning around 2.45-2.55am.
Unavailable for UK broadcast for many years, Forces TV worked closely with the BBC Studios to bring B7 back to our screens and add it to its line-up of cult series which has included UFO, Sapphire and Steel, Quantum Leap, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, The Saint and the original Battlestar Galactica.
Ahead of their first screening, Nicola Green, Rights and Acquisitions Manager for Forces TV said "We’re always searching the archives to bring the best of British sci-fi, drama and comedy back to our screens. Blake’s 7 had been on our wish list for the past few years, so we’re thrilled to be able to show such a popular and iconic series.
Science fiction holds a window to our world and the themes explored in the series are as relevant today as they were in the 1970s. We can’t wait for the series to start so we can introduce it to a new generation."
Often viewed by over 10 million people when it was originally broadcast on BBC1 between 1978 and 1981, Blake’s 7 has been praised for its dystopian themes and strong characterisation."
You can find Forces TV on Sky (181); Virgin (274); Freesat (165); Freeview (96) and YouView (96). For more information about Forces TV click HERE. FORCES TV
