The first television version of Day of the Triffids that I saw was probably on PBS. It was the 60’s BBC version and I was so enchanted by it that it stuck in my mind for years before I realized there was a book that came before it. The book didn’t do much for me. Recently I stumbled across the BBC 2009 version. It’s still a great story and this is a well done version even though recent developments in communications create a plot hole the size of the sun. Definitely worth looking for.
