Mon-Wed/Tue-Thu Genesis of the Daleks eps 1 - 6 of 6

Stranded on the planet Skaro, and separated from their only means to return to the TARDIS, the 4th Doctor, Sarah, and Harry investigate the creation of the Daleks, searching for a way to either erase the metal monsters from history or make them kinder, gentler metal monsters.
Thu/Fri The Android Invasion eps 1+2 of 4
The 4th Doctor and Sarah land on Earth to find the place deserted. What happened to all the people? Indeed, some viewers may wonder what happened to Harry Sullivan, as BBC America is skipping over a few stories.
