Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 1st October 1999:
NHPTV New Hampshire 11, 49, 52
Sun 3PM EDT Planet of the Daleks eps 2+3 of 6
(It's the real episode 3, not episode 4 disguised as episode 3. Episode 3 is not part of the traditional US package of Pertwee stories.) The Daleks capture the Doctor and blow up the ship which Jo was resting in. Episode 3 only exists in Black & White at the moment. It is apparently the high budget episode, with a suspenseful escape scene and a balloon action scene, if I've read the novelization correctly.

ยป the next edition reported that, as it turned out, episode three wasn't shown after all, episode four was shown instead.
