    I turned on BBC iplayer tonight to find something to fill some time and Day of the Triffids just appeared on it:

    A quick google and there is some press release on it. The cast lineup sounds a bit more expensive than usual for something like this:

    Google live is showing a bit of twittering on it already.

    Second episode airing tomorrow apparently.

    It will be interesting to see how close this mini series is to the book. It was a quite geared up towards the survivalist in many ways. Also I wonder how many people will be watching this without having ever watched the previous incarnations or read the novel and yet will have watched 28 Days Later and will be sat there noticing particular elements that appear the same. (My first watching of 28 Days Later had me in a bit of a rage at certain scenes that appeared to have been copied right out of the novel Day of the Triffids!)
