BBC AMERICA - FEBRUARY HIGHLIGHTS

-From the co-creator and writer of Primeval, BBC AMERICA premieres Survivors-

SURVIVORS � U.S. PREMIERE

Imagine what would happen if a virulent disease scoured the planet, wiping out 99% of the human race. It kills every member of your family, your lovers, friends, neighbors and probably everyone you have ever known. Imagine the world stripped of all the conveniences of the 21st Century � no law, no shops, no communications, no transport, no electricity, no clean water. This is the apocalyptic scenario facing the heroes at the center of this chilling new drama series, brought to you by the co-creator and writer of Primeval. Set in the present day, Survivors focuses on the world in the aftermath of a virus where only a lonely few are left to start over in a devastated world where everything that was once safe and familiar is now strange and dangerous.

In the middle of the story is a bewildered but resilient group of survivors led by Abby Grant (Julie Graham), a woman whose strength comes from a burning need to find out if her young son is still alive. Other members of the group include Greg (Paterson Joseph) a good man who hides the pain of his past, Anya (Zo� Tapper) a doctor who has seen too many people die and Al (Philip Rhys), a former playboy who becomes surrogate father to streetwise urchin Najid (Chahak Patel). Then there is Tom (Max Beesley), outwardly handsome and charming, but actually a dangerous and ruthless man who, unbeknown to the others, was a high-security prisoner before the virus hit.

This brave new world brings an opportunity for new beginnings, but also terrible dangers � not just the daily struggle for food and water, but also a deadly threat from other survivors. Survivors premieres Saturday, February 13, 8:00p.m. ET/PT - subsequent episodes premiere at 9:00p.m. ET/PT.

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW UK SEASON 32 � U.S. PREMIERE

Antiques Roadshow UK returns to BBC AMERICA with an all-new season. Join presenter Fiona Bruce, one of the BBC's primetime news anchors, as she keeps the tradition going with priceless treasures being examined and commented on by the Roadshow experts. One of the UK's longest running shows, it's part adventure, part history lesson, and part treasure hunt showcasing some of the most valuable and sometimes not-so-valuable treasures hidden in the back of closets, tucked away in attics and even buried under beds. Discoveries from last season include a sword that fought in the English Civil War, original designs for the tomb of the Unknown soldier, the oldest toy train in the program's history, rare paintings and a unique recording of a Beatles recording session.

Antiques Roadshow premieres Monday, February 8, 4:00 p.m. ET/PT
