Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 21st August 1998:
KBTC /KCKA 28/15 in Tacoma Park, Washington is airing Doctor Who pledge free, but only with half the broadcasts. The Monday installments are being shelved for pledge drives. Saturday, viewers get the same 2 episodes at 7PM and 12:30AM. This week, they offer the first 2 episodes of Trial Of A Timelord: The Mysterious Planet, a 6th Doctor story. The Doctor has been taken out of time and placed on trial for meddling by a Gallifreyan court. The Valeyard replays a recent adventure of the Doctor to prove his case. In the court footage, the Doctor and Peri (mysteriously absent from the courtroom) land on a planet in the far future eerily similar to Earth.
