  • 19 July: We've fully revised the Nigeria profile and Airdates pages to fix a number of factual errors, but to mainly add a lot of new information, such as:
    • Maps of the early days of TV in the country
    • Why RKTV went off the air for two months in 1966
    • Where and where did the Patrick Troughton stories screen?
    • Details about the NTA Zones, and additional screening dates
    • Who or what was "The Son of Dr Who?"?

  • 3 March: A small amendment to the Guam pages; it looks like the series was originally scheduled to start a few months earlier than it ultimately did, and the true debut was also a week earlier than the date we had it.
  • 2 March: Update to Jamaica to include Peter Cushing and the Daleks at the cinema, and some of the TV Dalek stories appear to been shown out of sequence.

  • 11 January: Some of the documentaries and dramas made by Reeltime Pictures and BBV Productions have been shown on US and UK television. We have added new profiles for these two production companies. (And if anyone can confirm that the "PROBE" dramas did indeed screen on the UK Sci-Fi Channel, please drop us a line!)
