broadcast anniversaries

15 February 1964: broadcast of "The Brink of Disaster", second episode of the story we now call The Edge of Destruction. The Doctor works out that the Tardis was trying to warn them that it was heading for destruction, fixes the problem and apologises all round.

15 February 1969: broadcast of third episode of The Seeds of Death. The Doctor is captured by the Ice Warriors, who start transmitting their deadly seeds to Earth.

15 February 1975: broadcast of fourth epsiode of The Ark in Space. The Doctor manages to save the beacon by tricking the Wirrn onto the shuttle, which Noah then blows up in a last act of his human self.

15 February 1982: broadcast of first episode of The Visitation. The Tardis lands in England in 1666, where an alien ship has recently landed with fatal consequences for the local manor house.

15 February 1983: broadcast of first episode of Terminus. Turlough sabotages the Tardis and it lands on a ship full of people suffering Lazar's disease.

15 February 1984: broadcast of second episode of Resurrection of the Daleks; last regular appearance of Janet Fielding as Tegan Jovanka. Lots and lots of death and destruction.

As noted last week, this is the fourth of seven dates in the year when six episodes of Old Who were broadcast.
