What do you remember about the show?

The only thing I can think of is a British series from 1979 called Noah's Castle (based on a YA novel of the same name by Sue Townsend. I studied the book in high school which is why I remember it). It is set in a Britain that is without a government and on the brink of anarchy, with troops roaming the debris-littered streets and food prices rising to the levels of Weimar-era Germany. The Mortimer family is headed by father Norman – a stern army colonel type who has planned ahead for the looming breakdown of social order by hoarding serious amounts of food, petrol and other essentials (including booze – “for barter”) in the cellar of the isolated family home (the “Noah’s Castle” of the title).

However, I don't rcall a scene involving a university or a yeti.


How well does it match the trope?
