Posted by Rich Cross on October 28, 2012

A not-heard-before press interview with Julie Graham (Abby Grant) from the 2008 pre-series-one promotional campaign (by journalist Katy Blackwell) has been made available on the SoundCloud streaming service. In the 5m 25s interview, Graham discusses the then-forthcoming first series, the character of Abby Grant, the contemporary relevance of the show, the making of the first series, and more besides.

Birmingham – series two – episode two locations

Posted by Rich Cross on October 2, 2012

A recent work visit to Birmingham took me within a few hundred yards of series two Survivors filming locations around Edmund Street, in Birmingham city centre, and the multi-story car-park at its far end (seen in the first two episodes). I had a few minutes before catching the train home to snap the following (click on each thumbnail for a far larger version):
