Friday 5th January 2001:
KTEH 54 San Jose, CA
Sun 11PM PST An Unearthly Child movie (An Unearthly Child, The Cave Of Skulls, The Forest Of Fear, The Firemaker)
In the very first story, two school teachers, concerned about a troubled pupil of theirs, wander into the universe of a man who can travel through Time and Space. Beginning with this story, KTEH is airing Doctor Who in movie format (if KTEH's website still think it is showing episode format, it is mistaken). KTEH hopes to switch back to episode format within the next few months.
