  1.20 Are there any other forthcoming productions from BBV?

     BBV ?? - "SENTINEL"
          (Approx. 90 mins)
          Released: *FORTHCOMING*

          An action-adventure story pitting The Cybermen against the Ice
          Warriors!

          SFX #4 reported that some pre-production design work has been
          carried out. The designs for the Ice Warriors and the Cybermen look
          suspiciously like designs mooted for the aborted DOCTOR WHO 30th
          Anniversary story, THE DARK DIMENSION. The reason for this is that
          the designer on both projects is the same man.

          The most recent information suggested that BILL BAGGS was trying to
          get the necessary finance to make SENTINEL on film and give it a
          cinema release. However, it should be noted that the most recent
          information is very old now and at the moment SENTINEL seems to
          be very much on the back burner.

SECTION TWO - REELTIME PICTURES

  2.1 Who are REELTIME PICTURES?

     REELTIME PICTURES is a video production company that was set up by
     long-time Doctor Who fan KEITH BARNFATHER during the 1980's. They have
     produced a series of over thirty interview/documentary tapes consisting
     mainly of one to one interviews with well-known stars of DOCTOR WHO. A
     full list of these productions is available on WWW at:-

     REELTIME have also branched into drama, initially with short pastiche
     skits to top and tail the interview tapes and eventually into full
     scale drama productions.

  2.2 What "ALTERNATIVE" WHO productions have they produced?

     "WARTIME" by ANDY LANE and HELEN STIRLING
          (Approx. 30 mins)
          DIRECTED and PRODUCED by KEITH BARNFATHER
          Original Release: 1987
          Re-Release: 4th July 1997

          While on a seemingly routine delivery run for the rigadier, Sgt
          Benton finds himself in a nightmare world where past and present
          are one. Will he be lost forever or can he fight his way back to
          reality where he is desperately needed!

          Starring JOHN LEVENE as WARRANT OFFICER JOHN BENTON
                   NICHOLAS COURTNEY as THE VOICE OF THE BRIGADIER
                   MICHAEL WISHER as FATHER
                   MARY GREENHALGH as MOTHER
                   PAUL GREENHALGH as CHRIS
                   STEVEN STANLEY as JOHNNIE
                   PETER NOAD as WILLIS
                   PAUL FLANAGAN as MAN
                   NICHOLAS BRIGGS as SOLDIER

          UNIT and BENTON created by DERRICK SHERWIN

          REELTIME PICTURES has re-released WARTIME in a new, revamped and
          cleaned up format. Here's what MARK AYRES had to say on the project:-

          "...I've remastered the sound to as high a quality as it's now
          possible to achieve, I was still working with the original source
          material and I've not been able to remaster the script or the acting
          or direction! And I've not tampered with the music score either. The
          main point is that when we originally made it we were unable to do a
          few technical things that were really necessary. Cost constraints
          meant that it was shot and cut on low band Umatic video - a very
          imprecise medium which led to the audio editing being terrible. And
          it was mixed on 8-track which meant it had to be in mono. So what
          I've done is to reconform the audio so that the edits now work,
          remake the effects in stereo (still using my original source tapes)
          and remix. I've not altered any artistic decisions we made back
          then, just technical ones. Paul Vanezis has also remastered the
          pictures, and you really ought to give it another look. It'll never
          be perfect, but remember that it was the first of the spin-off
          videos, and led, directly or indirectly, to all the others! The new
          release will also include a small "making of" documentary using home
          video shot at the time, new interviews of a "where are they now"
          nature, and a bit on the remastering."

     "DOWNTIME" by MARC PLATT
          (Approx. 70 mins)
          DIRECTED by CHRISTOPHER BARRY
          PRODUCED by KEITH BARNFATHER
          Released: September 1995

          "Find the Locus!"

          It is Twenty Five years since The Great Intelligence last attempted
          an invasion of Earth, today its evil web is again reaching out
          towards us!

          Using the New World University as its cover and the zombie-like
          Chilly students as its pawns, the Intelligence now seeks to control
          the mind of every human being.

          Tangled in this new struggle are its old enemies Victoria Waterfield
          and Professor Travers - but whose side are they on?

          Fighting alone this time, without their scientific advisor, The
          Brigadier and Sarah-Jane Smith of U.N.I.T. are hard pressed to
          decide who is  friend or foe as they search for the missing Locus
          which still binds  the Intelligence's power.

          Battle is joined as the Brigadier's own family is threatened and
          U.N.I.T. faces a monstrous new breed of Yeti.

          Dellah - one of the most prestigious centres of learning in the
          Milky Way. She wants to put the past, especially her failed
          marriage, behind her.

          So she's glad when she gets the chance to take her tutorial
          group to investigate the lost civilisation of Perfecton. Three
          whole weeks of archaeological research in the field. The perfect
          way to forget your worries.

          She doesn't bank on three things.

          That Menlove Stokes, Professor of Applied Art, and various other
          academics would be along for the ride. That vicious alien marauders
          would decide to ecplore the planet at the same time. And that a

          can only be described as - panto.

     "BEYOND THE SUN" by MATTHEW JONES
          (Approx. 2 Hours)
          DIRECTED by GARY RUSSELL
          Released: September 1998

          Bernice Summerfield has drawn the short straw. Instead of enjoying
          the pleasures of intergalactic conferences and highbrow lecture
          tours, she's been forced to take two overlooked freshers on their
          very first dig. To make matters worse, her no-good ex-husband,
          Jason, turns up claiming that he is in deadly danger.
          Unfortunately, Benny starts to believe him only after he has
          already been kidnapped from his hotel room.

          Feeling guilty, she sets out to rescue him. After all, she knows
          no one else is going to. Her only clue is a dusty artefact that
          Jason claimed was part of an ancient and powerful weapon. But
          Professor Bernice Summerfield Ph.D. knows that's obviously
          nonsense. She's been an archaeologist long enough to know that
          lost alien civilisations do not go around leaving their powerful
          weapons lying around for any old nutter to find.

          Once again Benny finds she is all that stands between Jason and
          his own mistakes. She must try to prevent a terrible and somewhat
          unlikely weapon from falling into the wrong hands - a weapon
          rumoured to have powers beyond the sun.

          Co-stars SOPHIE ALDRED as MIRANDA

     "WALKING TO BABYLON" Adapted by JAC RAYNER from the novel by KATE ORMAN
          (Approx. 2 Hours)
          DIRECTED by GARY RUSSELL
          Released: January 1999

          Part One of the Time Ring Trilogy

          "I'M SCARED OF LETTING ALL THESE PEOPLE DOWN. AT LEAST IF I GET
          BLOWN UP AS WELL, THEY CAN SAY I DIED HEROICALLY. ASSUMING I
          EVER EXISTED AT ALL."

          The People are a highly advanced race who, it has to be said,
          one would tend to cross the road to avoid in case you
          accidentally pissed them off and they obliterated you for it.
          And your family. And your planet. And, indeed, most of your
          timestream. Yup, they're that powerful. So, now that their
          little war with another, equally powerful race, has come to an
          end, the rest of the galaxy can breath a sigh of relief. Until
          a couple of them decide they want the war to continue - but to
          break the peace treaty they need to do something pretty damn
          spectacular - like travelling back in time...and to do this,
          they need to get hold of a time ring. Bernice has one. So does
          Bernice's pointless, shit-for-brains, always-needs-to-be-rescued
          ex-husband, Jason Kane. Guess which one of them steals the
          other's and gives them to the People? Clue: it ain't Benny.

          Much to Jason's consternation, the People take him along for
          the ride to the past and he realises that their claims to be
          interested in archaeology might just be a little (how can we
          say it?) false. A farago of lies, to be precise. And so Bernice
          sets off in pursuit. But rescuing Jason won't be easy. Other
          People are all for sealing off the entrance to the newly-formed
          Time Path with a bomb; trouble is, the resonance will destroy
          the other end of the Time Path, destroying Babylon and
          irrevocably altering history. Hoping she has enough time,
          Bernice ventures into the past, encountering an Edwardian time-
          sensitive explorer who has also been drawn back. Together not
          only must they attempt to find Jason, but also stop the People
          and then get everyone back to their rightful centuries. Before
          the People in the 26th century can use their bomb.

          Sounds pretty simple. Except that the ancient city of Babylon
          is not as safe and pleasant as Bernice might have hoped...

     "BIRTHRIGHT" Adapted by JAC RAYNER from the novel by NIGEL ROBINSON
          (Approx. 2 Hours)
          DIRECTED by NICHOLAS BRIGGS
          Released: January 1999

          Part Two of the Time Ring Trilogy

          "IF THE HUMAN RACE WERE TO DIE TOMORROW, INSECT LIFE WOULD
          CARRY ON REGARDLESS. INSECTS MIGHT EVEN BECOME THE DOMINANT
          SPECIES!"

          Thrown off the Time Path, Professor Bernice Summerfield is
          trapped in early 20th Century London, with only one of the pair
          of time rings she needs to get home.
          At the other end of time, her ex-husband Jason Kane finds himself
          stranded on a dead world, where the queen of the Charrl demands
          his help to save her dying race. But all he wants to do is find
          Benny, and return to the 26th Century.
          In the East End a series of grisly murders has been committed -
          is this the work of the legendary Springheel Jack or, as Benny
          suspects, something even more sinister? Allied with a Russian
          detective, she determines to find out. But the master of a grand
          order of sorcerers has other plans for her...

          Co-stars STEPHEN FEWELL as JASON KANE
                   COLIN BAKER as MICKHAIL VLADIMIR POPOV

          "BIRTHRIGHT" is based on one of the books from VIRGIN PUBLISHING'S
          DOCTOR WHO: THE NEW ADVENTURES series, rather than the later
          BERNICE-based NEW ADVENTURES. In the original THE DOCTOR only
          appears at the beginning and end of the story (in the mean time
          he is off fighting Cybermen in "ICEBERG") and BERNICE's fellow
          travelling companion for the adventure is ACE. For the purposes
          of this adaptation, ACE's part has been rewritten for JASON KANE.
          Recorded on during December 1998.

      "JUST WAR" Adapted by JAC RAYNER from the novel by LANCE PARKIN

          Released: FORTHCOMING June 1999

          Part Three of the Time Ring Trilogy

          "TOMORROW BELONGS TO US, NOT YOU. IF YOU WERE REALLY FROM THE
          FUTURE, MISS SUMMERFIELD, YOU WOULD BE A NAZI."

          The Nazis occupy British soil and British citizens are being
          deported to European concentration camps. Those who do not
          co-operate with the Germans are shot.
          This isn't a parallel universe: this is Guernsey, 1941, and
          it's where Bernice is stranded. With no sign of Jason, she has
          to endure the full horror of the situation, alone and afraid.
          And something, somewhere has gone wrong. The Nazis are building
          a secret weapon, one that will have a decisive effect on the
          outcome of the war - and it's up to Benny to put history back
          on course...
