Broadcast notes:

Intro: "So, fancy bending space and time with the one and only Doctor Who, then stay with us for some classic adventures in our Who On Horror weekend featuring a complete story from each of the first seven Doctors. First to step into his shoes comes William Hartnell in the first ever episode from 1963. Two teachers concerned for one of their students discover she lives with her eccentric grandfather in a police box - but of course this is no ordinary police box and it's no longer 60s London but stone-age Britain, and some very angry cavemen are on their case in An Unearthly Child. Remember you can get in touch on Twitter using #WhoOnHorror."

The ad break occurs as Ian and Barbara watch Susan enter the junkyard, and Barbara wonders that it's "as if we're about to interfere in something that's best left alone"...
