BBC relives The Day of The Triffids

New two-part adaptation of Wyndham classic

Build a business case: developing custom apps

The BBC is poised to start filming on a new adapation of John Wyndham's The Day of The Triffids, due to hit screens in a high-definition two-parter some time next year.

Quite how ER screenwriter Patrick Harbinson will inject new life into the classic tale of horticultural apocalypse remains to be seen, since the Beeb has already done three TV and four radio versions. The corporation promises, though, a "fast-paced, futuristic and electrifying take" on the chilling guide to why you shouldn't look at meteor showers.

Julie Gardner, head of drama at BBC Wales, said: "We're hoping to attract a legion of new fans as well as give nightmares to a new generation of viewers."

The BBC says the show has yet to be cast, but is scheduled to go into production in London and the south-east "later this year". ®
