On the 27th April, 1976, in Studio 1 at BBC Broadcasting House, Portland Place, London, Tom Baker and Elisabeth Sladen reprised their regular Who roles for a special radio episode of Doctor Who. This episode was the third in a series of four geography programmes produced by BBC Schools called `Exploration Earth'. The episode was eventually broadcast in mono at 2pm on Monday, 4th October 1976 on RADIO 4 VHF, two days after Part One of `The Hand of Fear' was first broadcast on BBC1.
Aside from the inclusion of the Doctor and Sarah, several other references were made to Doctor Who; the opening and closing theme music from the series was used, as were the TARDIS interior sound effects. Mention was also made of the Time Lords.
