Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 6th November 1998:
Prairie Public Television of North Dakota - channel 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 13
Friday at 10:30PM - Robot - episode 1 of 4
The newly regenerated 4th Doctor tries to decide whether to help UNIT deal with yet another international incident, or take off for planets unknown. This marks Prairie Public Television's first broadcast of Doctor Who. Be gentle with them - they're clearly rookies at Doctor Who broadcasting. The person answering e-mail requests was uncertain which episode they were airing, and the tape seemingly did not have a title! (I determined that it was Robot based on the code - 12001.)
