Friday 6th November 1998:
KSPS Spokane, Washington - channel 7
Saturday at 10:30PM - The Robots of Death - movie format
The 4th Doctor's efforts to teach Leela the concept of the TARDIS being bigger on the inside then out are interrupted by their landing on a sandminer where people are being strangled. Perhaps the only piece of science fiction ever where "please do not throw hands at me" is a straight line. About 90 minutes.
