The part about Doctor Who says:

"BBC Worldwide announced today at BBC Showcase that it has concluded a two-year agreement with SKAI, the new Greek terrestrial television channel launching on 1 April 2006, to televise over 500 hours of drama, factual and news and current affairs programming.

"The titles range from dramas such as Spooks and Doctor Who to documentaries, including Seven Wonders of the Industrial World, Space Odyssey - Voyage to the Planets and three history titles looking at the Ancient Wonders of Jerusalem, Greece and the Holy Land."

C21Media also reported on the story in this article:

Congratulations to Greek TV viewers. Hopefully SKAI will be a channel that is easy to receive. Since the channel has yet to launch, it is too soon to guess when Doctor Who may start airing in Greece.
