A brand new two-hour drama celebrating the 40th anniversary of Terry Nation's classic Blake's 7 series.
The Way Ahead- by Mark Wright Part 1: Project Aquitar, Part 2: Dissent.
Roj Blake. Kerr Avon. Names that sent shockwaves through the galaxy, shattering the foundations of the Terran Federation and giving hope to the oppressed.
But what is their legacy? Crusading heroes or dangerous enemies of the state? In the early days of Blake's rebellion, the Liberator comes to Malanar Delta to aid resistance leader Avalon, but the crew find Space Commander Travis and his Federation forces waiting.
An abandoned Federation research project could give Travis the key to finally bringing Blake to justice.
Years later, in the aftermath of the Galactic War, Avon and the Liberator crew fight to survive as new battle lines are drawn and alliances forged by President Servalan.
Will survival be enough when a symbol of hope is turned into a devastating engine of war?
