Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 18th September 1998:
For probably the final week, WQED 13 / WQEX 16 Pittsburgh and BBC America (a Cable network) will air the same Doctor Who episode. In The Ark In Space, episode 4, the Wirrn go into battle with the awakened humans for the sleeping survivors of humanity. Will the 4th Doctor's plans to save humanity be foiled by Sarah's decision to indulge in a few hot fudge sundaes in unrecorded adventures? Or will she be able to squeeze through? WQED will air the episode Saturday at 10:30PM, and BBC America will air it (with commercials) Saturday at 11:15PM Eastern Time with a 5:15AM repeat.
