JORDAN is located in the Middle East, XXXXXXXXXX.

TV & system

Jordan began its television service in 1968.

There is just one television station: Jordan Television, a government-owned commercial broadcaster.

Colour transmissions began in 1973 using the PAL colour broadcast system.


The main languages of Jordan are Arabic and French. However, television was broadcast in English, French and Hebrew.


Jordan was the 31st country to screen Doctor Who; it was the fourth in the Middle East (see Selling Doctor Who).

BBC Records

Jordan is not named in The Seventies or The Handbook.

In DWM, Jordan is named in 3 story Archives: L for Hartnell, and 4A and 4C for Baker.

The Eighties the Lost Chapters records a sale (by 10 February 1987) of 4 stories.

Saudi Arabia was the previous Middle Eastern country to screen the series – a year earlier - so it's possible that Jordan was sent the same set of prints from Saudi Arabia.

Stories bought and broadcast


Presumably Jordan aired the standard package of nine stories, 37 episodes:

A An Unearthly Child 1
B The Daleks 7
C Inside the Spaceship 2
E The Keys of Marinus 6
F The Aztecs 4
G The Sensorites 6
J Planet of Giants 3
K The Dalek Invasion of Earth 6
L The Rescue 2

The programme was supplied as 16mm black and white film prints with Arabic soundtracks.


Four stories:

DWM identifies two stories from season 12, so presumably the other two were from the same season:

4A Robot 4
4C The Ark in Space 4
