Nostalgic Break Number 2: Roj Blake against the Totalitarian Terran Federation

Ah! Blake’s 7, the escapades of a futuristic Robin Hood and his band of reprobates. Yes, it’s time for another nostalgic break. Blake’s 7 was created by Terry Nation (who invented the Daleks) and it ran for 4 seasons from 1978 to 1981. British television at its BBC late 70’s best!

I think this programme might have the most memorable opening music ever but one of the best things about the show was the constant barrage of cynicism and insults from Avon and I still find them funny. ” Ah, I’m sorry I missed that, it is the kind of natural stupidity no amount of training can ever hope to produce!”

Take a look at this complilation of Avon barbs that someone kindly collected and posted on YouTube!
