Satellite television station Super Channel was launched on 30 January 1987, and broadcast across Europe.
From 24 March 1987, Doctor Who was part of Super Channel's regular schedule, although they were limited to a 16 story / 66 episode package of just the first fourteen Tom Baker stories – Robot to The Deadly Assassin - plus The Robots of Death and Horror of Fang Rock, which were repeated a number of times, either episodically or as omnibus editions.
Some of these omnibuses, such as Genesis of the Daleks, had the Sylvester McCoy opening credits with Tom Baker's face superimposed over McCoys, as well as newly-created story title and writer captions, but with the McCoy logo - as illustrated here.
The final episode of Doctor Who to screen on Super Channel was the second airing of part four of Horror of Fang Rock on 6 August 1989.
In 1989, the channel was purchased by NBC. It was later re-branded as NBC Super Channel until 1996. The Europe broadcasts ceased from 20 December 1998.
