Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 16th October 1998:
KBDI Denver, Colorado - channel 12
Friday night at 11PM Mountain - The Three Doctors - episodes 3 and 4 of 4
Saturday night at 10PM Mountain - Carnival Of Monsters - episodes 1 and 2 of 4

Friday's feature has the first three incarnations of the Doctor fightingOmega, the forgotten hero of the Time Lords, who's decided he wants revenge. Then on Saturday, the 3rd Doctor materializes the TARDIS on a ship in 1926. Of course, the slight anachronism of an alien sea monster turning up during the cruise makes the Doctor a trifle suspicious. This broadcast is also available to some viewers in Ontario, according to PBS online.
