Doctor Who On Polish TV
- Doctor Who is now on the air in Poland.
Polish digital TV channel TELE 5 (not the German TELE 5, the Polish TELE 5)
recently started airing Doctor Who weekend mornings at 9:30AM Central
European Time. This Saturday, 8 June, episode 3 of Genesis Of The Daleks
will air - dubbed in Polish.
While the channel is digital, it is not encrypted. I can't tell from the
info I got if you can pick it up over the air with an antenna, but you can
get it for free on satellite. Here is the satellite info:
ASTRA-satellite (orbital position: 19,2° East)

http://www.wirtualnemedia.pl/tele5/index1.htm appears to be the website for
this channel, though I'm still investigating and I don't know a word of
Polish. Will announce in next week's TWIDW if there is a better site. Also,
if anyone out there knows a good translator which converts Polish language
websites to English, drop me an e-mail. The best known translator
(Babelfish) does not currently have a Polish translating setup.
If you spot Doctor Who on the air somewhere, and I haven't mentioned it in
TWIDW, please let me know. Let's keep the column up to date for the whole
