      BBC Three 8:15PM - Doctor Who: Bad Wolf (repeat)
      Wednesday 28 September:
      NRK 2 Norway - 8:05PM - Doktor Who: Rose (premiere)

      Early edition due to a hectic week for the TWIDW editor.

      NRK 2 Norway http://www.nrk.no has put Doktor Who's premiere in the
      search section of their TV listings, as spotted by Norwegian fan
      Torger Keilland. Wednesdays at 8:05PM starting 28 September,
      commercial free. They will be the first mainland European
      broadcaster to air Doctor Who.

      The Doctor Who Restoration Team Forum http://www.restoration-
      team.co.uk has news of the surprise recovery of a couple of short
      Doctor Who clips from the 1966 story "Power Of The Daleks". The
      clips were noticed on BBC2 (!) during the show "Sunday Past Times",
      which was airing footage from 1960s documentary programmes.

      BBC Three http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree has made more changes to its
      Doctor Who repeat run. The Wednesday night Confidential Cut Down
      repeats have been stopped. Saturday night full length Confidential
      episodes resume on 17 September at 7:45PM. On 25 September the
      Sunday repeat moves back to 7PM for "The Parting Of The Ways",
      followed by a cut down Doctor Who Confidential episode. The Friday
      9PM repeat and 9:45PM cut down Confidential remain the same.

      The CBC http://www.cbc.ca/television has finished its repeat run of
      the 2005 Doctor Who series. Doctor Who returns to Canada with The
      Christmas Invasion in a few months.

      Maryland Public TV http://www.mpt.org will air Doctor Who at their
      regular start time of Midnight tonight this Saturday (the 17th)
      instead of the previously scheduled 12:30AM. A pledge night is being
      replaced by a Live From Lincoln Center fundraiser for Katrina
      victims. Iowa Public TV http://www.iptv.org will also air the
      fundraiser - their updated schedule does not indicate a time change
      for that station's Doctor Who broadcast.

      The BBC Press Office http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice and C21 Media
      http://www.c21media.net often announce when a Doctor Who
      international sale occurs. Worth keeping an eye on, just in case.

      Corrections and updates are welcome at thisweekindoctorwho-
