Survivors was a British television programme created by Terry Nation and produced by the BBC from 1975 to 1977. It concerned the plight of a group people who had survived a plague that had killed between 97% and 99% of the entire population of the planet. The programme is usually described as falling into the science fiction genre, but a more appropriate description would be to call it apocalyptic fiction.

The programme ran for three series and 38 episodes. It starred Ian McCulloch, Carolyn Seymour, Lucy Fleming and Denis Lill. Terry Nation left after the first series to concentrate on other work and some critics feel that the direction of the programme suffered as a result.
