Storyline

A group of train passengers, including a policeman (Ian Hart) a wanted criminal (Mick Sizer) and an M.O.D. scientist (Harriet Ambrose) are travelling to Sheffield when their train crashes inside a tunnel and a strange gas envelopes them. When they awake, they find that Harriet froze them all so they could survive the giant meteor impact that destroyed the rest of the world. Now, they seem to be the only survivors of the human race in a world overrun with tropical plants and patrolled by packs of man-eating dogs. Written by R. Magrath

Still waiting for the video...
27 August 1999 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this. That it wasn't an original idea is beside the point. HG Wells, John Wyndham, Fred Hoyle, ...many wrote about the End of the World as it might affect the ordinary bod in the street long before such as 'Deep Impact' and other high-impact extravaganzas were made. & I've never forgotten 'Threads'... As a commuter, I can say that no train journey will ever be quite so boring again. I stumbled on this website by chance and am sending this comment in the hope that enough appreciation might persuade Granada to publish a video,
