Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 20th September 2002:
Good news - WQED/WQEX 13,16 Pittsburgh, PA has scheduled a special broadcast of Doctor Who for this weekend. Starting at Midnight, WQED/WQEX will air both episodes of Black Orchid, a story which apparently suffered from tape problems when it aired recently. WQED/WQEX was not originally scheduled to air Doctor Who this weekend. Arc Of Infinity part 4 will air next week as scheduled. This might be a good chance for Pittsburgh area viewers to thank WQED for keeping Doctor Who on the air. Send them an e-mail or write them a letter. Nothing like evidence of viewership (and in the case of PBS stations - pledges of money) does more to encourage stations when they decide at renewal time which shows to keep around.
