Survivors series two DVD release date published

Posted by Rich Cross on October 22, 2009

Both and HMV are listing the series two Survivors DVD for pre-order with a scheduled release date of Monday 8 February 2010.

Series one of Survivors was released on DVD on Monday 26 January 2009, less than a month after the transmission of series one concluded on BBC One and BBC HD. However, the 8 February 2010 release date for the series two DVD must surely remain provisional, pending the confimation of the transmission dates for the new series.

BBC yet to confirm transmission dates for Survivors series two

Posted by Rich Cross on October 8, 2009

The BBC has yet to confirm the transmission dates for the second series of Survivors.

Series one of Survivors was shown in November and December of 2008, and it is likely that series two will appear on BBC One screens either late in 2009 or early in 2010 – although the BBC has still to go public with its decision.

As soon as the BBC has announced the transmission slot for Survivors series two, details will be posted on this blog.
