Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 25th September 1998:
KSPS 7 in Spokane, Washington (and available in several states) will present the movie version of The Brain of Morbius at 10:30PM Pacific time (11:30PM Mountain). The 4th Doctor and Sarah land on a planet where Time Lord heads are in high demand, but the Doctor's is the only one around! The original video release of this story had the entire "Sisterhood Of Karn" subplot sliced out of it for no apparent reason. So, if you bought the 1985 video release, this is 35-40 minutes longer. Some British Columbia and Alberta, Canada viewers can see this station.
