Double bill of made-for-TV supernatural dramas. In 'The Stone Tape' (1972), when scientists working for Ryan Electrics move into their new headquarters, a gothic mansion, they find one room unfinished. Strange noises are heard and the builders are too frightened to complete their work. When the other scientists dismiss such fears as irrational whimsy, only psychically-minded Jill (Jane Asher) senses the dark secret that lurks beneath the building. 'Ghostwatch' (1992) is a fully-scripted drama which imitated the format of a live television broadcast taking place inside a haunted house. The hoax is made all the more convincing thanks to its use of well-known TV presenters Michael Parkinson, Sarah Greene and Mike Smith.

The Doctor and Dodo arrive in London in swinging 1966, only to discover a plot to use the computer WOTAN (housed in the Post Office Tower) to take over the world. When Dodo is hypnotised along with WOTAN's controller Professor Brett, the Doctor finds help in the form of Polly, Brett's secretary, and Able Seaman Ben Jackson. Together they must defeat WOTAN's terrifying War Machines. This release includes restored footage unseen since 1966, a clip from 'Blue Peter' in the same year with the public unveiling of a War Machine and a feature on how the story was put back together from the source material.
Final adventure for the first incarnation of television's favourite time traveller. The Doctor (William Hartnell), Ben and Polly arrive at the South Pole Tracking station in 1986, just as a strange satellite enters Earth's orbit, affecting the latest space mission. The Doctor predicts that the new arrival is Mondas, Earth's long-lost twin planet, and is proved correct when the base is invaded by the Cybermen, the planet's ruthlessly logical and seemingly invulnerable inhabitants.
All six episodes, including two that are animated due to their being missing from the BBC archives, of the second Doctor's classic 1967 adventure. In 'The Ice Warriors', the Doctor (Patrick Troughton), Jamie (Frazer Hines) and Victoria (Deborah Watling) arrive on Earth in the year 3000 AD - in the middle of the second Ice Age. At the Brittanicus Base, a team of scientists struggle to control the elements with a machine known as the Ioniser. When a body is found perfectly preserved in the ice barrier which surrounds the base, it is thawed out. The creature proves to be an Ice Warrior - one of an agressive reptilian race from Mars, intent on awakening its fellows and conquering the Earth.
