This Week In Doctor Who - May 29, 2002

Welcome to the weekly guide to Doctor Who on Television. A quiet week, but a few matters to bring up.
South America - Still need help from someone who has Uniseries down there. What Doctor Who episodes are they airing?
USA - The 1996 Doctor Who Movie (starring Paul McGann) is airing on the Sci-Fi Channel on Sunday, June 30 at 5PM Eastern. Use the schedulebot to adjust for local time.
RADIO - On May 24th, the Interstellar Transmissions radio show devoted its broadcast to remembering John Nathan-Turner, longtime producer of Doctor Who. It was a fond farewell to the final and longest lasting producer from the show's original 26 year TV run. If you missed the show, I have good news. A "director's cut" of the broadcast, including a tribute by Dan Harris which there was not time to include, is now available to listen to in MP3 format at .
USA - The June pledge drives are underway in much of the US. Your station might start Doctor Who late, air extra Doctor Who programming, or pre-empt it all together. All times approximate for stations in pledge mode.
