Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 29th January 1999:
New Hampshire Public TV 11, 12, 15, 49, 52
Sunday at 3PM - Inferno - episodes 4 and 5 of 7
On the alternate Earth, the Inferno project is about to penetrate the Earth's crust. If they succeed, they will all be doomed to death, and the 3rd Doctor will be unable to stop it. Watch for the radio scene in episode 5 that was cut from the original BBC broadcast. My guess is that the alternate universe 3rd Doctor was a radio broadcaster.
