Here's an example of the pledge drives during Doctor Who on PBS stations in the 80's. Every PBS station was different... they aired different Doctors, showed it at different times and some showed the episodes and some showed Doctor Who edited together as movies. This is from channel 5 WUFT in Gainesville Florida. At the time channel 5 was VERY sci fi friendly and they aired single Doctor Who episodes every day Mon-Fri at 6pm and a full "movie" on Saturdays at 6pm. They also aired Twilight Zone, Blakes 7, Tripods, Hitchhikers and was one of, if not THE only PBS station that ared Star Trek. WUFT was out of the University of Florida and the sc fi was popular with the college students, before the time of the sci fi channel. They even had sci fi Thursday Night, or something like that for awhile. In the early 90's the station got a new program director that wasn't into sci fi and all those shows were dropped. This station stopped airing Doctor Who around 1992. Durin the pledge drives they gave away Doctor Who coffee cups, calanders and T-shirts ect if you donated money to the station in the name of Doctor Who.

At the time I edited out most of the pledge drive footage from my videos because I just wanted the stories. Now I wish I had more of it now.
