Network (PBS), including: WMEB/WMEG, Channel 12 (Orono) and WMEA, Channel 26 (Biddeford) and Bangor


  • The series aired weekly on Saturdays, early evenings, usually at 6.00pm:
  • Early 1980s: The Tom Baker stories aired.
  • 28 December 1985 The Peter Davison stories begin.
  • 19 July 1986: The channel airs the 17 repackaged William Hartnell stories:
  • 20 December 1986: The 24 repackaged Jon Pertwee stories screen.
  • July 1989: A viewer in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, recalls seeing The War Games (in two parts) and Spearhead from Space in July 1989, on consecutive weeks, at 5:00 or 6:00pm. (In all likelihood, these were broadcasts from MPBC, which did indeed extend to Nova Scotia, and which was screening the Troughton and Pertwees at that time.)
  • 9 September 1989: An unnamed omnibus aired from 5:00pm to 6:30pm (presumably a Jon Pertwee story).
  • 3 October 1998: The series returns with two episodes every Saturday night at 9pm. The run begins with Robot.
