What's new 2015
From BroaDWcastJump to navigationJump to search
- 16 December 2015: Airdates for KUED added.
- 23 November: Happy 52nd Anniversary!
- 16 November: We've given the Nigeria page an overhaul: we have added some maps, expanded the NTA/NTV coverage of Tom Baker screenings in the 1980s, ask did Troughton episodes ever screen there in the 1980s?, and reveal who "The Son of Dr Who" really was...
- 3 November: Major update to Philippines: we have found the airdates for the GMA Channel 7 screenings in 1989, plus revised the layout and given the page a general tidy up.
- Small update to the Mormon Mystery: "The World About Us" did air in New Zealand after all.
- 18 October: 60 years ago on this day, the third part of John Lucarotti's serialised account of Marco Polo's travels in China aired on the CBC in Canada. And no, that isn't an error! Very little is known about Lucarotti's 1955 radio play that was the inspiration behind the well-regarded Doctor Who serial, so we decided to investigate...
- 13 October: We note with interest that both Wikipedia pages mentioned in the Morman Master Plan Mystery have recently been amended!
- 8 October: A small addenda to the Morman Master Plan Mystery: some terminology changes (the church was by definition a chapel, not a temple), and an additional solution for how the films got there.
- 30 September: Around this time some 32 years ago, the fan-press reported that two "missing" episodes of The Daleks' Master Plan had been found in the basement of a Mormon Church. Or were they.......?
- An airdates table for the first three years of KAET has been added.
- 50 years ago today, on 7 July 1965, an internal memo was issued by the BBC which identified that something called "T.I.E." had purchased 26 episodes of Doctor Who. To celebrate that milestone we've given our TIE Ltd page a complete overhaul. (Our grateful thanks go to Steve Traves for his stirling (!) work tracking down the documentation referred to in the update)
- We've also revised the Bicycling Chains page (again, sorry) to reflect the new information.
- 5 May: On 5 May 1965, the CBC in Canada was half-way through its brief 26-episode run of Doctor Who. To mark the occasion, we have completely revamped our coverage of the CBC screenings, expanding it into eight separate pages, to now include regional variances in the Western and Central and Atlantic regions, a short run of repeats (yes, repeats!) and we follow the bicycling of kinescope film copies around the Provinces. We also present the CBC Times TV listings, and explore why the CBC dropped the series after only 26 episodes... (Our grateful thanks go to Randy Howell for his efforts researching and compiling this data)
- As a spin-off to this, we have also updated the bicycling chains page (again!), and made adjustments to Ghana and Bermuda.
- And the other Canadian station TVO has been given a spruce up as well.
- 30 April: The profiles for Italy and Monaco have been updated to feature some new newspaper clippings, articles and some ratings statistics, and to fix a few layout errors.
- 29 April: Updates have been made to:
- 4 April: We've made some updates to Brazil: still no sign of the regular series, but we now have dates for the first Peter Cushing movie and the Paul McGann movie. (UPDATE: Layout of this revision has since been revised.)
- 3 April: We've updated the Bermuda page to add some new newspaper clippings, and to update the TV station profile, noting the reason why they dropped Doctor Who after only 26 episodes.
- 23 January: 50 years ago today, on 23 January 1965, Doctor Who aired in Canada for the very first time. The CBC was the third station outside the UK to screen the new series.
- 23 January: D'oh! We updated the Australia TX 1965-1967 page last week, but did so using the wrong template. The proper update has now been uploaded.
- 12 January: 50 years ago today, on 12 January 1965, Doctor Who aired in Australia for the very first time. To celebrate, we've given the Australia pages (all 17 of them!) a bit of a tidy up.
