Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 27th August 1999:
WCET 48 Cincinnati, OH
Sat 11:30PM EDT Planet of the Daleks eps 4 and 5 of 6
This version is designed to cover up the fact that the color version of episode 3 is missing. The titles have been redone to claim to be eps 3 and 4. After escaping from the Daleks in the episode this version doesn't admit exists, the Doctor works with the Thals to find a plan to destroy the Dalek army. The station probably was sold this as part of the regular package, and may not know that episode 3 was skipped. Next time they get to the Pertwee era, someone will have to politely warn them so they can raise the money to get the complete version.
