The BBC lost the PAL (UK TV system) master tape of episode 2 of the Sea Devils, but found an American NTSC system tape of sufficient quality to convert it back into PAL to complete the story in color.
The Day of the Daleks
UNIT is placed in charge of security at
a crucial Peace Conference, guarding Sir Reginald Styles, the diplomat with the best
chance of averting a war between the Chinese and Russians. A mysterious guerilla
attempts to kill Styles and then disappears with Jo and the Doctor - into a terrifying
future Earth ruled by the Daleks and their brutish slaves, the Ogrons. The guerillas
explain that the Daleks overran the Earth after a nuclear war back in the 20th century -
caused by Styles. They believe the war and subsequent invasion can be averted by killing
Styles. But are they right?

The Curse of Peladon
The Time Lords send the Doctor and Jo
to the primitive planet of Peladon. King Peladon and his Chancellor wish Peladon to join
the Galactic Federation, and are entertaining a delegation from the Federation. The Doctor
is mistaken for the Earth delegate, and becomes suspicious when he finds that an Ice
Warrior is among the other delegates. Shortly after their arrival, the Chancellor is
murdered, apparently by Aggedor - the mythical Royal Beast of Peladon. The Doctor
investigates, discovers that there is a conspiracy to prevent Peladon joining the
Federation, falls foul of the religious laws of Peladon and has to engage the King's
Champion in a duel, and eventually comes face to face with a very real, very hairy and
rather large Aggedor. Jo, meanwhile, has her hands full when King Peladon falls in love
with her! Can the Doctor stay alive long enough to defeat the conspiracy?
