Blake’s 7 ‘Orac’by: MMM.Commentaries • tags: 1970s • free • short.form
From MMM Commentaries:
MMM returns to the world of Blake’s Seven with the first part of the Blake ahem fourplay. In the 70s and early 80s story arcs were still fairly rare in tv sci-fi but Terry Nation and co were there with thier unfolding sagas and end of year cliffhangers. In ORAC, the disparate Liberator crew find themselves heading to the water planet Aristo( somewhere in the North Sea it looks like) in search of the animal-vegetable-mineral known as ORAC.
Unfortunately Servelan and Travis ( well his feet anyway) are on the same path with the world’s vaguest map. To make matters worse , the crew have come down with radiation poisoning and the ship is about to get a very dire prediction…
Join MMM for this 50-minute milestone in drama and amphibians. Find out what ORAC was MEANT to be, why we only see Travis’ nether regions for the second half.and solve Tony’s conundrum : why weren’t Blake’s crew doing the bad thing?
