Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 1st June 2001:
Prime TV New Zealand
Sun 6PM Nightmare of Eden ep 4 of 4
Last rerun in 1988. Mon-Thu 6PM The Horns of Nimon eps 1 - 4 of 4
Last rerun in 1988. The 4th Doctor prepares a long-overdue overhaul of the TARDIS in deep space, where nothing will disturb his work. Nothing except a mysterious black hole and a marooned space ship, that is. A very witty script, and much in the Douglas Adams style of writing, even though he was only the script editor, and not the authour of this installment. The final story in the 70s vein, and they went out in style.

This concludes Prime's current run of Doctor Who stories. Doctor Who is expected to return in a few months after a run of Blake's 7. Probably beginning with The Leisure Hive.
