Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 11th May 2001:
WCET 48 Cincinnati, OH
Sat 11:30PM EDT The Ribos Operation eps 2+3 of 4
The search for the 1st segment of the Key To Time causes the Doctor and Romana to come across Garron and Unstoffe, criminals who are trying to swindle the nastiest despot this side of the fancy restaurant industry. (Note - WCET seems to have skipped The Invasion of Time episode 6 and The Ribos Operation episode 1. If they realize this, those episodes might air instead of the ones listed above.)
ยป next week confirmed the latter two were shown.
