Sunday 14th July sees the broadcast of the 1988 Sylvester McCoy story, Remembrance 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 4:20pm in Australia, and 4:40pm in New Zealand. The latter country has an additional screening on Monday 15th July at 4:05am.
The UKTV billing describes the story as follows:
Unusual events are unfolding at Coal Hill School & the Doctor discovers that the Daleks are on the trail of Time Lord technology which he left on Earth centuries ago.
Remembrance of the Daleks was first broadcast in Australia in 1988 (the last episode screened on 23rd November, marking the 25th anniversary). New Zealand did not get to see the story until February 1990.

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. The rest of the month's schedule includes: 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.
