Yup typically commercial cashinery . . . the cult status makes it worth more than it is . . . have a loo for some out takes if they are out there - they have shown a few on UK outtake shows and you will see just how "cheap" the production had to be at times . . .

Notable though Blakes 7 was one of the first TV programmes to use the venerable Quantel Paintbox for FX . . . gee remember that?

cult status in the UK only . . . should have pointed that out, and most of them were the teens-30 brigade, so most of them are still around like myself. That said the last season was getting poor once (spoiler alert) the lierator was destroyed, and Blake "disappeared" fans started to get disillusioned.

Still it will be interesting to see what Syfy do with it . . . the premise was good, and modern CGI will be spanking . . .

Almost can't wait...but am scared they won't match the level of greatness the original has..
