This could be interesting. For each airing, MPT has slated 2 and 1/2 hours to the broadcast, enough time to run all 6 episodes, including the Black & White episode 3. MPT usually runs the movie versions, and the movie version of this story cuts out the Black & White story, coming out just under 1 hour and 50 minutes. However, I know they got a fair amount of grief last year when they aired the incomplete version (I was only one of the people who vocally complained). MPT never really explains what they're doing, so we won't know until the story airs whether the Black & White part will air or not. I'll post a report in rec.arts.drwho sometime Saturday after I can check the tape.
