Revelation of the Daleks on UKTV


UKTV

Sunday 30th June sees the broadcast of the 1985 Colin Baker story, Revelation of the Daleks on Australian and New Zealand television. The story is presented as part of the 50th Anniversary season of Doctor Who on the UKTV channel.

The story screens at 4:15pm in Australia and 4:10pm in New Zealand.

The UKTV billing describes Revelation of the Daleks as follows:
The Doctor arrives in a facility where the wealthy can have their newly-deceased bodies cryogenically frozen until medical science can cure what killed them.
Revelation of the Daleks was first broadcast in Australia in 1986. New Zealand first saw it in 1988, as part of a week of special screenings to mark the series' 25th anniversary. The story was originally screened in Britain as two 45-minute episodes, but was first broadcast in Australia and New Zealand in four parts. The UKTV transmission will feature the two-episode version.

UKTV is showing stories throughout the year in the lead-up to the anniversary in November. In July the focus is on Sylvester McCoy's Seventh Doctor, with the following stories scheduled: Paradise Towers (7 July); Remembrance of the Daleks (14 July); The Greatest Show in the Galaxy (21 July); The Curse of Fenric and Survival (both 28 July).

Up-and-coming broadcasts from both 20th and 21st Century series of Doctor Who can be found via UKTV's Doctor Who sections for Australia and New Zealand.
