One of the highlights of the BBC's 2009 Christmas TV schedule, John Wyndham's classic 1951 post-apocalyptic bestseller The Day of the Triffids comes to the screen as an epic, brand new, contemporary adaptation written by Patrick Harbinson (Law And Order: Special Victims Unit; E.R.) and directed by Nick Copus (The 4400; Eastenders). The new version is described as an effects-laden CGI extravaganza about a world threatened by carnivorous, man-eating plants. The cast includes Dougray Scott (Desperate Housewives), Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck), Eddie Izzard (Valkyrie; Ocean's Thirteen), Brian Cox (The Bourne Supremacy), Vanessa Redgrave (Atonement; Evening), Jason Priestley (My Name Is Earl; Medium), Shane Taylor (Band Of Brothers) and Ewen Bremner (Hallam Foe).
