Reports from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 25th June 1999:
KRWG 22 Las Cruces, NM
Saturday at 10:30PM MDT Revenge of the Cybermen movie version
The Ark Arc concludes when the 4th Doctor and company return to the Ark at an earlier point in time, when it serves as a beacon to keep ships from hitting a newly discovered asteroid. The beacon takes on prime importance when it turns out that the asteroid is almost pure gold, the perfect weapon against the Cybermen. And the Cybermen are determined that no one will ever get the chance to use that asteroid.

» The channel realised the running order was wrong and switched this to Genesis of the Daleks instead. However, due to an oversight in the length, the end got chopped off! The last two parts were instead shown the following week before Revenge of the Cybermen.

Friday 2nd July 1999:
KRWG 22 Las Cruces, NM (El Paso, TX)
Saturday at 10:30PM MDT Genesis of the Daleks movie version
The 4th Doctor is intercepted en route back to Nerva by the Time Lords, who want him to carry out a small task. The Doctor merely has to alter the Daleks history at the moment of their creation.

» The channel actually showed the last two episodes of Genesis which were cut off last week, followed by Revenge of the Cybermen.
