In the 1980s, Doctor Who was supposedly the most popular program shown on Oregon Public Broadcasting's television network. At first, they showed one episode every weekday. However, they eventually switched to weekly showings of "feature-length" versions of the stories, broadcasting an entire serial with all the episodes back to back. (Since the lengths varied sometimes, this must have been a scheduling nightmare, but they did it nonetheless.)
I have seen entire Doctor Who serials shown start to finish many times, but the way OPB broadcast them was not typical. Usually, when multiple episodes are shown back to back, the end and opening credits sequences are included. However, OPB showed recut versions, which led directly from one episode to another, with no credits in between. Obviously, this meant only showing the footage that appeared at the end of one episode and the beginning of the next a single time. (In cases for which the recap at the beginning of an episode was not exactly the same as the end of the previous episode, I don't know which version they used.)
I know that they showed all the Tom Baker and Sylvester McCoy stories in this format, and they may have shown the Peter Davison and Colin Baker seasons as well. Was this version of the stories officially distributed in this form by Lionheart Television, or were the episodes recut by Oregon Public Broadcasting itself?
