Survivors: The Basics

Survivors: A World Away here provides a 'key-facts' guide to numerous different aspects of Survivors. Alongside an introduction to the show, its main characters, its core themes and dramatic preoccupations, this section of the site offers a guide to the broadcast history of Survivors on terrestrial and satellite-cable TV; an account of the release of the first series of the programme on sell-through video in the 1990s; and full details of the release of all three series of the show on DVD between 2003 and 2005.

In addition, Survivors: The Basics introduces the world of Survivors in print, looking at the two novelisations of the show and the two guide books which document the behind-scenes-story of the making of this pioneering post-apocalyptic drama. Finally, this section looks at the world of fan publications, and at the BBC's decision, in 2006, to commission a revival of Survivors.

Each page in Survivors: The Basics includes its own section navigation - making it even easier to locate the required information.
