Full Survivors series to be available on BBC iPlayer

Posted by Rich Cross on January 14, 2010

All six episodes of series two of Survivors will be available for streaming (or time-limited download) on the BBC iPlayer service. Rather than the standard seven-day access to a single episode (after which a new episode replaces the previous one) the entire series will be ‘stacked’ on the iPlayer, with each new episode joining those already available (until a week after the last episode is shown, at which point all six episodes will be withdrawn from the iPlayer).

The service currently indicates that episode one of Survivors series two will be available until 23 February (which would have been a week after episode six had broadcast). With a two-week gap now separating the broadcast of episodes one and two, it is certain that this date will be revised – meaning that episodes will be available until 2 March 2010.

Please note: access to programme content on the iPlayer service is only available in the UK

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 iPlayer: Survivors will be offered under Series Stacker

Posted by Rich Cross on October 22, 2008

The BBC has confirmed that the new series of Survivors will be made available on the iPlayer under the Series Stacker service.

That means that shortly after each new episode has been broadcast is will be added to the iPlayer service as an additional episode, rather than replacing the previous week’s instalment. Over the course of six weeks, a streaming version of the entire first series will build up. For the week following transmission of the sixth episode of Survivors the entire first series will be available to view online.
