      Not much new this week, but for those of you who missed it:

      As of July 23, it is 26 days until "The Airzone Solution" and "Auton" have
      their US broadcast premieres on KTEH 54 San Jose/KCAH 25 Watsonville, CA
      http://www.kteh.org/ . If they pledge well, KTEH has the option to air the
      BBV videos and sell them to other public TV stations. BBV's website is
      http://www.bbvonline.co.uk/ .

      Richard E. Grant (Withnail & I, the Horatio Hornblower movies, 10th Doctor
      in The Curse Of Fatal Death) will be the BBC's official Ninth Doctor in a
      fully animated webcast on BBCi's website in November, the month of Doctor
      Who's 40th anniversary. Check out http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/doctorwho/ for
      more details.

      While I try to keep the column up to date, I do sometimes miss late changes
      to schedules. If you see TWIDW's information getting out of synch with what
      your local station is actually airing, let me know ASAP.

      Additions and corrections are welcome at
