Full Survivors series to be available on BBC iPlayer

Posted by Rich Cross on January 14, 2010

All six episodes of series two of Survivors will be available for streaming (or time-limited download) on the BBC iPlayer service. Rather than the standard seven-day access to a single episode (after which a new episode replaces the previous one) the entire series will be ‘stacked’ on the iPlayer, with each new episode joining those already available (until a week after the last episode is shown, at which point all six episodes will be withdrawn from the iPlayer).

The service currently indicates that episode one of Survivors series two will be available until 23 February (which would have been a week after episode six had broadcast). With a two-week gap now separating the broadcast of episodes one and two, it is certain that this date will be revised – meaning that episodes will be available until 2 March 2010.

Please note: access to programme content on the iPlayer service is only available in the UK
