      This Week In Doctor Who Western Hemisphere
      February 21, 2009 - Vol 1, No 8
      The Guide to North and South American Doctor Who TV Listings
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      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. KUED
      7 Salt Lake City UT is now on the list of stations:

      The public TV stations known to have bought The Runaway Bride and
      Series 3:
      WXXI 21 Rochester, NY (already running)
      WTTW 11 Chicago, IL (start date unknown)
      WGVU/WGVK 35,52 Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo, MI (already running)
      WILL 12 Urbana, IL (already running)
      WTVP 47 Peoria, IL (already running)
      Iowa Public TV (already running)
      Idaho Public TV (already running)
      Milwaukee Public TV (already running)
      KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT (starts April 18)

      Now, I am confident that there are more stations with rights to
      Series 3 than that. But these are the stations who have contacted me.
      Somehow I doubt that BBC Worldwide Americas is going to send out a
      note with the stations who bought in like American Public TV did,
      leaving us in the dark till a station comes forward or it appears in
      their schedules.

      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. 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 4 episodes this Sunday night to finish.
      2 episodes on KOCE Huntington/Orange County, CA most Saturdays. 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.

      Ten 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, KVPT 18 Fresno, CA, and KTEH 54 San
      Jose, 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 3 and Sylvester McCoy episodes. KBTC 28 Tacoma, WA is airing
      Tom Baker episodes while their new Who rights are about to expire.
      WHRO 15 Norfolk, VA is airing Tom Baker episodes but apparently does
      not have New Who Series rights.

      In the USA, all the full power TV stations are currently due to turn
      off their analog transmitters at 11:59PM on June 12, 2009 and go
      strictly to digital broadcasting. This is the most recent final
      immovable date to be passed by Congress and signed by the President.
      Roughly one third (about 600) of the stations have previously turned
      off their analog signals and more will shut down during the 90 days
      before June 12. And with a shortage of parts, analog stations that
      have transmitter failures probably will not be repaired. Cable
      customers are not noticing the change. Satellite customers who get
      their local channels on the satellite service are not noticing the
      change. 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 keep doing new scans whenever stations in your area turn off
      analog, as the level of overlapping station interference will
      decrease and many stations will be moving to new broadcast
      frequencies 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 once this transition is complete, and
      depending on where you live you may have already noticed stations
      going away.

      And now, the listings:

      Public TV Premiere Run:
      I have tried to get the correct digital switch day for each of these
      stations. There has been a lot of conflicting information, and
      sometimes I have had to guess. If you are watching these stations
      over the air instead of via cable or satellite provided locals, your
      best bet is to make sure you have a digital tuner NOW (built into
      your TV, VCR, DVR, DVDR, etc or as a set-top box).

      On 14 February, The Long Game and Father's Day aired, with Dalek
      skipped. This Saturday still has 90 minutes of KOCE favorites that is
      hopefully Doctor Who broadcasts. So I'm going to make a guess:
      Saturday 11:30PM? PST 1-09 "The Empty Child" pt 1 of 2?
      Late Saturday 12:15AM? PST 1-10 "The Doctor Dances" pt 2 of 2?
      28 February - specific pledge specials in the timeslot. No idea
      when/if the remaining Series 1 episodes will air. 28 February is the
      last day on their contract.

      Saturday 7PM and Midnight PST "2 Tom Baker episodes"
      KBTC is reportedly airing episodes out of order with a bit of
      confusion, so we cannot be sure which ones are airing. They are
      probably from Tom Baker's last season. Looking forward to a reliable
      schedule as soon as we have it again.
      28 February 7PM and Midnight PST "2 Tom Baker episodes"
      KBTC/KCKA has the right to air Series 1 another 3 times before
      February 28, 2009, which they are not going to use. Looks like KBTC
      will join WHRO in only having Classic Who rights.

      Thanks for reading. Until next week, take care.
