      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Thursday 5 January:
      Style UK 9PM UAE - World War Three
      Friday 6 January:
      Style UK 9PM UAE - Dalek
      Jimmy (Italy) - 9PM - The Empty Child
      Saturday 7 January:
      één Belgium 4PM - World War Three

      New year, new station airing Doctor Who. The International Channel
      in Hong Kong has picked up Doctor Who for a premiere on Sunday 19
      February at 11:15PM. See
      http//groups.yahoo.com/group/thisweekindoctorwho/message/369 . I've
      come across two translations of the show title - the version in that
      quote is "Different World Outstandingly Able Person". I've been told
      it also translates as "Wonder Man From Alien World". The
      International Channel is a cable network in Hong Kong. As of this
      writing the channel's website has not been tracked down.

      In Australia, it's the Hopman Cup, not the Holman Cup that is pre-
      empting the classic series repeats through the 6th. ABC Australia's
      http://www.abc.net.au/tv advance listings now extend through 4
      February, with parts 2 and 3 of Survival airing on Friday 3
      February, finishing the repeat run that began in September 2003. It
      is expected that ABC will replace Doctor Who with other programming -
      they told groups like the SFSA http://www.sfsa.org.au when they
      began the run that they had only bought the rights to air the
      episodes one time. To air them again at the same time or a different
      time would mean they'd have had to buy rights to another repeat. The
      schedules for 5 February through 11 February should be online in a
      couple of days, and will reveal ABC's future plans.

      Één Belgium http://www.een.be resumes Doctor Who this week after a 2
      week break. Still keeping an eye on the online listings for
      Nederland 3, TV2 Finland, SVT Sweden, RTLKlub Hungary - no sign of a
      premiere date yet on those broadcasters.

      BBC7 http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7 premieres part 3 of "The Chimes Of
      Midnight", a 2002 Big Finish audio story with Paul McGann as the 8th
      Doctor and India Fisher as Charley Pollard. Airs 7 January at 6:30PM
      & 12:30AM GMT, then is available through listen again. The story
      concludes on the 14th.

      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.
