The United Kingdom covers England, Wales, Scotland, the Channel Islands and Northern Ireland, all of which receive BBC signals by transmitter relay. To allow for regional scheduling changes, BBC Northern Ireland, BBC Cymru (Wales) and BBC Scotland sometimes aired programmes or episodes at a time or a date that was different to the rest of the country.
BBC signals are also available in parts of the Republic of Ireland, while during the 1960s and 70s some viewers in coastal areas of Belgium, France and the Netherlands were also able to view BBC transmissions (albeit weak signals) coming across the English channel.
From the mid-1980s, BBC broadcasts -- including Doctor Who -- were seen "live" in certain countries in Europe via cable link and satellite feed (with the timeslots adjusted to allow for the different time zones).
Repeats of Doctor Who were also available on a number of cable and satellite channels owned and operated by the BBC itself -- see our dedicated BBC page and the list below.
