The BBC online shop is advertising a two-disc DVD of new Survivors with a release date of 5 January 2009 and a retail price of £29.99. The release number is given as: bbcdvd2812.

If this date is not revised, then the DVD release will follow within a couple of weeks of the transmission of the sixth and final episode of the first series.

The promotional description reads:

Imagine being the only survivor of a disease that kills every member of your family; that kills friends, lovers, nearly everyone you have ever met…

You are among the lonely few to live and now you must survive in a strange new world where things that were once safe are made disturbing and unsafe – it’s our own world but recycled, Re-imagined and reused. Set in the present day, Survivors focuses on the world in the aftermath of a devastating virus which wipes out most of the world’s population. What would we do?

How would any of us cope in a brave new world where all traditional 21st century comforts – electricity, clean running water, advanced technology – have disappeared? These are the questions asked of the band of survivors in this thrilling new action Adventure written by Adrian Hodges (Primeval). It’s a re-imagining of the classic seventies BBC drama series and is based on the novel by Terry Nation
