UK broadcaster Channel 5 has set a February premiere date for the social experiment series 10,000 BC (pictured), in which 20 Brits live in Stone Age conditions for two months.

The previously announced, 10 x 60-minute series – which was filmed in 2014, and will air twice a week over five weeks beginning in February – will see the group survive in the wilderness by hunting and foraging for food.

Participants trade in their phones for animal hides and settle in at a Mesolithic-style camp in a remote area of Bulgaria, where they must learn to build fires, dig their own latrines and preserve raw meat.

The series’ exact premiere date is to be announced next week.

10,000 BC is produced by The Garden and GME for Channel 5 as well as MTV UK, where a version of the show will air once a week over five weeks.
