The original BBC adaptation of John Wyndham’s classic story of post-apocalyptic survival.
Following the Earth’s close encounter with a comet, a meteor shower strikes Britain’s population blind. Bill Masen, recovering in a London hospital from a vicious plant attack, is one of a few to survive with eyesight intact. The world he emerges into has been terrifyingly altered.
The government has collapsed, bands of renegades are thriving in the anarchy – and a hostile carnivorous form of plant life, the Triffids, have begun to prey on the weakened and vulnerable human population. For Masen, life is now a desperate struggle…
For the first time ever, the original BBC adaptation is available to enjoy in full high definition, after a full restoration from the original film.
