The paranormal element is introduced through a series of fast cuts that focus on the protagonists’ reactions. Primeval’s promotional strapline is “Time for adventure”.

Supported by press and outdoor executions created by M&C Saatchi, Primeval airs on ITV1 in February. It marks the channels ambitions for a Saturday-night drama that David Pemsel, the group marketing director at ITV, says will “appeal to families as well as become cult viewing among aspirational adults”.
