Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Monday 13th July 1998:
This seems like a good week to pre-launch the list. MPT, my home station, ran part one of An Unearthly Child in episode form for the first time last week (though they started the show late). WQED/WQEX 13/16 Pittsburgh is relaunching Doctor Who beginning with Robot. And most episodes airing this week are highly regarded classics.
