In episode three of Battle of the Pilots, Adrian and Graham from the Zapped to the Past podcast reach into the massive back catalogue of TV shows from over the last 50 years and pluck out a couple of pilot episodes for a head to head battle. For episode three, we have chosen two mid 70s mostly British cult sci-fi shows – the darkly dystopian Blake’s 7 vs the brightly nihilistic Space 1999… let battle commence!
