Friday 18th December 1998:
BBC America - cable / Dish Network channel 135
Saturday at 5PM EST, Sunday at 2PM - Genesis of the Daleks - movie version, part 1 of 3
The 4th Doctor is hijacked in time and sent to the planet Skaro, where he is given 3 options. 1 - change the development of the Daleks. 2 - discover a new weakness in them. 3 - keep them from existing. While the Doctor ponders the consequences of altering history, viewers will ponder the many commercials that pad out the hour and resulted in some scenes being cut.
