Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 31st July 1998:
Iowa Public Television (IPTV - the station Siobahn is mostly to see Doctor Who on) offers 2 episodes Friday night at the regular late time of 11:05PM. This week Iowans can enjoy more of Patrick Troughton's antics, with part 6 of The Seeds of Death and episode 1 of part 1 of The War Games (must have something to do with the old movie format version being divided into two parts). Ice Warriors and World War I generals - separated at birth? You decide. An hour of exciting television.
