Survivors – BBC TV

The BBC's revival of the classic 1970s post-apocalyptic drama by Terry Nation

Survivors ‘Earth-from-space’ footage – sourced from BBC documentary series Planet Earth?

Posted by Rich Cross on May 13, 2013

The research efforts of Survivors‘ enthusiast Adrian H have uncovered good evidence that the Earth-from-space sequences used in the opening and closing sequences of each episode of Survivors were drawn from existing HD (High-Definition) footage created two years earlier for the 2006 BBC documentary series Planet Earth. This footage was itself an integral part of the earliest BBC experiments in High Definition broadcasting.

A montage of footage from Planet Earth showcases (in its opening moments) strikingly similar images to those featured in all twelve episodes of Survivors.

Recycling and re-using – without question, central tenets of post-apocalyptic survival strategy!
