BBC launches Survivors Interactive

Posted by Rich Cross on November 25, 2008

The BBC Survivors web site has launched Survivors Interactive. This new site (which requires Flash software, and which seems to work far better in Internet Explorer than Firefox) includes interviews with actors; clips from the programme; and original in-character pieces-to-camera. The interactive component is based on visitors selecting characters from the show and then answering either/or dilemma-based questions, which are then profiled into survivor ‘types’ as they ‘journey’ through the post-plague environment.

BBC Survivors mini-site launched

Posted by Rich Cross on November 11, 2008

The BBC Survivors mini site is now live at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/survivors.

Not yet fully-populated, the site includes a slightly extended promotional trailer (apparently the streaming video content is locked to UK IP addresses for licensing reasons); a short introduction to the series and illustrated character guides.

More content is certain to be added soon, when the full-version of the ‘Survivors interactive’ web site is launched.
