      This Week In Doctor Who Western Hemisphere
      February 7, 2009 - Vol 1, No 6
      The Guide to North and South American Doctor Who TV Listings
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      USA - BBC America is reaching the end of Series 4, with a 46 minute
      version of the 63 minute Series 4 finale Journey's End debuting on
      Saturday February 7. BBC America will then take Doctor Who off the
      air for the rest of February. It is unknown if Who will be back in
      March or on its first break from the channel since Spring 2007.

      USA - Doctor Who - Series 3 (The Runaway Bride and the 13 episode
      2007 series with Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones) are now distributed
      to Public TV stations by BBC Worldwide Americas, not American Public
      TV. Series 4 also seems to be available to buy - start date for
      Series 4 on Public TV stations is unknown. BBC Worldwide Americas
      also distributes classic Doctor Who to the stations that air it. WTVP
      47 Peoria, IL joins the list of stations airing Series 3 - episodes
      begin February 14.

      Series 1 is currently available to public TV stations in an American
      Public TV package until February 28, 2009. American Public TV is not
      re-issuing Series 1, so those episodes will be unavailable to public
      TV stations after the aforementioned date unless/until BBC Worldwide
      Americas decides to offer them. Series 2 is currently available to
      public TV stations in an American Public TV package until March 31,
      2010. For the Series 1 and 2 packages, stations have bought the
      rights to cycle through the episodes 4 times. They are not required
      to do so.

      As we approach the end of the rights, several stations are putting
      Doctor Who back on the air briefly to burn off Series 1 episodes
      while they can. NET Nebraska has been airing 3 episodes on Sunday
      afternoons all January long, and will end with one episode on Sunday
      February 1. WQLN 54 Erie, PA has been using up Series 1 late Fridays
      for a while and should finish just before the rights run out. WMFE 24
      Orlando, FL is airing 3 episodes on Sunday nights beginning February
      1. 2 episodes on KOCE Huntington/Orange County, CA on Saturday
      January 31 - they will have to air more episodes at a time on future
      Saturdays to actually finish the series before the rights run out.
      There is no evidence that any of these mentioned stations have bought
      Series 2 or will buy future series of Doctor Who at this time -
      consider this their final farewells.

      Nine stations have used all their rights to the Series 1 package -
      WLVT 39 Allentown, PA, WJCT 7 Jacksonville, FL, WILL 12 Urbana, IL,
      Iowa Public TV, KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT, Idaho Public TV, Wisconsin
      Public TV, KLRU 18 Austin, TX, and KVPT 18 Fresno, CA. OETA Oklahoma
      has used half of their 4th and final cycle of Series 1.

      3 Public TV stations currently have rights to air the classic Doctor
      Who run (1963-1989). Iowa Public TV is currently airing both New Who
      Series 2 and Sylvester McCoy episodes. KBTC 28 Tacoma, WA is airing
      Tom Baker episodes while resting New Who Series 1. WHRO 15 Norfolk,
      VA is airing Tom Baker episodes but apparently does not have New Who
      Series rights.

      The public TV stations known to have bought The Runaway Bride and
      Series 3:
      WXXI 21 Rochester, NY
      WTTW 11 Chicago, IL
      WGVU/WGVK 35,52 Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo, MI
      WILL 12 Urbana, IL
      WTVP 47 Peoria, IL
      Iowa Public TV
      Idaho Public TV
      Milwaukee Public TV

      In the USA, all the full power TV stations are currently due to turn
      off their analog transmitters at 11:59PM on February 17*, 2009 and go
      strictly to digital broadcasting. This was the final, drop dead, we
      are serious, no take backs date agreed to several years ago after the
      date kept shifting. Cable customers will not see a difference.
      Satellite customers who get their local channels on the satellite
      service will not see a difference. If your TV gets local stations
      over the air and *does* have a digital tuner built in or as a set top
      box, you are fine but will want to do a scan on the 18th as many
      stations will be moving to new locations to be received better. If a
      TV does not have a digital tuner or a box, it will only be able to
      get some low power stations that have chosen to stay analog for a
      while. For all intents and purposes, the US digital transition that
      began in 1997 will finally be over.

      *At press time the US Senate and US House have passed a bill that
      will change the deadline till June 12, 2009. The President is putting
      off signing the bill until at least Monday for a public comment
      period. The date is 99% likely to change (the odds of the President
      changing his mind are remote), but it has not changed yet. Assuming
      the date will change, the FCC is having all the stations that want to
      sign off on February 17th as originally planned to submit their plans
      *again* by February 9th (before the bill changing the date gets
      signed) and convince the FCC that turning off their analog signal is
      in the public interest. There is a desire to limit the number of
      stations that actually turn off on the 17th, because otherwise the
      legislation to delay the date will look rather silly. The stations
      that get approval will join roughly 200 that have already turned off
      analog or never had analog on. Stations that are already digital only
      can file to put their analog signal back on the air. The rest of the
      stations get to go through the analog shutdown again. The last 90
      days (March 14 to June 12) could see additional analog stations turn
      off early if they have given 30 days notice. And June 12th is
      expected to be the final deadline. Again. Unless the government
      changes their minds. Now that the government has simplified the
      transition to digital television, they are back at work fixing the US
      economy.
