Survivors secures French language DVD release

Posted by Rich Cross on November 13, 2011

Survivors has been released in a special French language (Region 2) DVD series on the Koba Films label.

Individual sets of series one and series two were released on 27 April 2011, and a two series box-set released on 19 October 2011.

All three releases offer a dubbed French (along the original English) soundtrack and French subtitles, and have the additional French title of Les Survivants De L’Apocalypse (‘Survivors of the apocalypse’).

The Koba Films release is the only example so far of a second language release for Survivors. The French editions are widely available through European DVD retailers (alongside the original English-language Region 2 2-entertain release).

Survivors series two DVD new release date: 1 March 2010

Posted by Rich Cross on February 9, 2010

The release date for the Survivors series two DVD set has been revised to 1 March 2010. The previously announced release date was today (8 February 2010). The series one and two boxset will also now be released on 1 March.

The changed date reflects the fact that the transmission of series two began later than originally intended and will not now conclude until 23 February 2010 (when episode six is shown).

Survivors series two DVD release date published

Posted by Rich Cross on October 22, 2009

Both Play.com and HMV are listing the series two Survivors DVD for pre-order with a scheduled release date of Monday 8 February 2010.

Series one of Survivors was released on DVD on Monday 26 January 2009, less than a month after the transmission of series one concluded on BBC One and BBC HD. However, the 8 February 2010 release date for the series two DVD must surely remain provisional, pending the confimation of the transmission dates for the new series.

Beesley promotes Survivors series one in Italy

Posted by Rich Cross on July 11, 2009

Survivors actor Max Beesley (Tom Price) appeared at the Italian film and TV festival RomaFictionFest being held in Rome between 6-11 July.

Beesley was in attendance to promote series one of Survivors, which is an Official Selection for the Series strand in the International competition. RomaFictionFest is also an opportunity to promote international TV sales, in the European market in particular.

Three promotional shots of Beesley’s appearance can be viewed (in thumbnail format) on the Bruno Press web site. (Deep-linking is not supported, so carry out a search for Max Beesley Fiction Festival to retrieve the relevant images).

The original 1975-1977 series of Survivors was a major TV hit in Italy, and all three series of the show have just been released on DVD in Italy for the first time – in a set of three box-sets and also as a series of ongoing ‘part-works’.
