Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 2nd October 1998:
Iowa Public Broadcasting (channels 11, 12, 27, 32) will air episodes 4 and 5 of Doctor Who And The Silurians Friday late night at 11:05PM. The Silurians and the humans are bracing for conflict, and the Doctor tries to stop it. But when his efforts at peace go wrong, he may be branded as the traitor responsible for the death of humanity. The cliffhanger to episode 4 featured prominently in a Doctor Who novel where an alternate universe was created. ALERT: Someone is claiming that IPTV's episodes for this story are in color, while earlier reports said it was in Black and White.
