Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 24th July 1998:
MPT Maryland offers its viewers episode 3 of An Unearthly Child Saturday at 11:30PM, right after Red Dwarf Remastered. I managed to see a little bit of the remastered Dwarf, and I want to know what the difference is. It wasn't in widescreen like the reports out of England. The parts of the remastered episode I saw looked just like the episode I saw 9 years ago. It just doesn't grab my attention. And I'm still a bit steamed that that unscheduled Red Dwarf episode in 1989 kept me from getting a complete movie version of An Unearthly Child till 1992. Interesting how life tends to loop and repeat itself, isn't it?
