Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 11th September 1998:
MPT Maryland tries a new experiment - airing the show two weeks in a row in the same time slot! Saturday late night at Midnight they will air The Ambush, episode 4 of The Daleks. The 1st Doctor, Susan, Ian, and Barbara's efforts to escape the Daleks are hindered by the knowledge that the Thals are walking into a trap. Contacting the Thals will result in almost certain death.
