Why were the (typically 1970s style) series so successful? Although produced as low-budget programmes, the credibility relied up the viewer having the imagination to believe that such things were entirely plausible, if only in the future. The characters and storylines were carefully developed over the weeks to build the anticipation, hope, and fear which could not otherwise have been created in a single episode.

Terry Nation was the creative writer responsible for many of the cult Sci-Fi series of the 1970s...
The Daleks in Doctor Who, Survivors, and Blakes 7.
