The 6th Doctor and Peri have to land on the planet Varoa to seek Zeiton-7 ore for the TARDIS. Alas, they land during the period when Varos is a brutal prison planet where executions and torture are the big prime time TV programming. At the initial time of broadcast the idea of watching "reality" programming seemed abhorrent. These days - well let's just say that Big Brother has been renewed for a 3rd season in the US, and I'll bet the folks in the UK renewed it there too.
