Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 11th December 1998:
KTEH 54 San Jose, California -
Late Sunday at 12:06AM - Time and the Rani - all 4 episodes
The Rani makes the TARDIS crash-land on Lakertya, forcing the Doctor's 6th regeneration. A new 7th Doctor must uncover the Rani's latest scheme before history is erased. This was only the second time in Who history that there was an opening sequence before the credits began. (The Lionheart movie compilation cut some of this sequence and moved the rest after the credits.) Ends at 1:47AM.
