Late Fri Mid CDT The Ambassadors of Death eps 4+5 of 7
Black & White. Episode 5 is available in various countries recolored from a 1970's US broadcast, but that version has, ironically, not been made available in the US. The Doctor believes that the government minister did not reveal the whole truth about the alien astronauts, and proposes heading up into space himself to make contact with the spaceship, before people begin to die. Meanwhile, Liz is kidnaped by the forces who have the "ambassadors".
