Liberation: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to "Blake's 7" Signed Copy

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Derided over the years for its poor special effects, odd costume design and a bias towards middle-class casting, Blake 7 nevertheless dealt with powerful themes. From its first appearance in 1978 to its final episode in 1981, the BBC's cult television show "Blake's 7" pushed back the boundaries of what was possible. In this book, Alan Stevens and Fiona Moore look at the background to and the writing of the stories and create the ideal companion for anyone interested in the development of TV science fiction during the late seventies. Stevens and Moore also reflect upon the programme's enormous success and fidelity to the science fiction genre.

Each of the show's four seasons is given a short behind-the-scenes overview, production and cast listings, a brief summary and a thorough analysis.

This copy appears to have been signed by the authors and by two cast members from the show, Paul Darrow (who played Kerr Avon) and David Jackson (who played Olag Gan) on the half-title and title pages. This was possibly done at a Blake’s 7 event, which took place at the Tricycle Theatre in London to coincide with the launch of the Season 2 DVDs on Sunday 16th January 2005 although this is not mentioned inside nor can be verified. (See photos)

CONDITION: Front cover has been creased diagonally from folding outwards and corners are a little bumped with minor thumbing marks to outside edge of pages otherwise this is a clean and bright copy. (See photos)
