Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 11th December 1998:
New Hampshire Public Television 11, 15, 49, 52 -
Friday at 10:30PM - Doctor Who And The Silurians - episodes 3, 4, and 5
A rift between two Silurian factions. One favors peaceful co-existence with humanity. The other favors wiping them out. The humans, naturally, want to wipe out the Silurians. And the 3rd Doctor is in the middle. Sounds a bit like Earth: Final Conflict, doesn't it? Three color-restored episodes, running a little over 70 minutes. NHPTV has only scheduled 60 minutes, so it will probably start early, run late, or both.
