The BBC is about to show a remake of the cult 1970s series Survivors.

Maybe it will be wonderful, but the whole enterprise feels like a mistake. Shouldn't we be inventing our own fables rather than living off the imaginative capital of an older generation? Even watching old cult series is risky: if they are not as good as you remember them, you spoil that memory.

Anyway, here are the opening titles of the original series. Get that surge in the music as the spilt virus hits the floor.
