Survivors second episode delayed a week by live football

The BBC Press Office has confirmed that the showing of the second episode of series two of Survivors will be delayed by a week, because of a rescheduled Carling Cup football match.

The semi-final fixture between Manchester City and Manchester United was due to take place on 6 January, but was postponed because of the heavy snowfalls in the region. The rearranged match will now be shown live on BBC One at 09:00pm on 19 January 2010 – meaning that episode two of Survivors (which would have been shown at that time) will be pushed back a week.

There will therefore be a gap of two weeks between transmission of episode one of Survivors‘ second series (12 January) and episode two (26 January).

  1. Typical! Have been looking forward to the second episode all day only to find it’s been ousted by a bunch of grotesquely overpaid eejits kicking a lump of leather around. :(

    1. Hi Emma – there’s no indication from the BBC that a repeat showing of series one is planned at the moment. Series one is, of course, available on Region 2 DVD and through iTunes download.
