Primeval is a British science fiction television series created by Adrian Hodges and Tim Haines and produced for ITV by Impossible Pictures which follows a team of five scientists tasked with investigating the appearance of temporal anomalies across Great Britain and containing prehistoric and futuristic creatures which enter the present.

The series originally aired in the UK on ITV from 10 February, 2007 to 6 June, 2009. It was officially cancelled by ITV in June 2009 but a deal was struck between ITV, Watch, Impossible Pictures, German broadcaster Pro7 and BBC Worldwide to produce two new seasons of the show for transmission in 2011.

Primeval premiered in South Africa on DStv's BBC Entertainment channel on Tuesday 14 October 2008, at 20h30. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 5

When rips in time called anomalies started opening across the UK, dangerous creatures from the past and future began appearing in the most unexpected places, endangering lives and placing the whole of humanity at risk.

A crack team of specialists were appointed by the government to investigate and control "creature incursions," creating the Anomaly Research Centre (ARC), which was later privatized.

Matt, Abby, Connor and Becker do the field work while Jess mans the ARC control station under the leadership of government official James Lester and the mysterious scientist, Philip Burton.

From creators Tim Haines and Adrian Hodges, Season 5 sees dark secrets bubble to the surface, testing relationships to the limit.

As anomalies become more numerous, unpredictable and dangerous than ever before, the end of the world seems to be just around the corner... will the team be able to stop the approaching apocalypse before it's too late?

Primeval was created by Adrian Hodges (screenwriter of the film Tom & Viv) and Tim Haines (writer/director of Walking with Dinosaurs).
