Pro7 secures the rights to broadcast Doctor Who [in Munich/Bavaria area]

A further coup succeeded to Pro 7: As today the BBC Worldwide, which admits
international marketing arm of the BBC in the context of the television fair
MIPTV in Cannes gave, has the resident of Munich transmitter itself the rights
at the two newest relays of the BBC Science Fiction cult series "Doctor Who"
secured. The 2 x 13 consequences ? 45 minutes will be to see presumably 2006 in
the program of the residents of Munich.

Thomas Schultheis, leader of program planning with pro7: "'Doctor Who' belongs
to the funniest and cleverest series, which the British television market has to
offer. The conversion is absolutely high-quality and the Stories of Russel
T.Davies offers best maintenance for a broad target group - from the Science
Fiction fan to the classical family public."

Isabelle Helle, Head OF Germany, BBC Worldwide: "The series enjoys long also
outside of of Great Britain cult status and into 16 countries was already sold.
We find it great that 'Doctor Who' on its time journeys with pro7 landed now and
concomitantly the German spectators will come into the benefit of the marvelous
adventures of the time lord and his female assistants."

"Doctor Who" went for the first time 1963 into Great Britain on transmission and
inspired 26 years long a faithful fan municipality. 2005 came the long expected
new edition of the BBC classical author with 13 episodes, which provided for
switching on records with the BBC and for enthusiasm with the spectators.
"Doctor Who" is a co-produktion of the BBC with CBC in Canada.
