BFI to preview animated Power of the Daleks

As we first reported earlier in the month, the British Film Institute (BFI) is to hold a special preview screening of the first three episodes of the newly-animated adventure The Power of the Daleks.

Originally screened in November and December 1966, The Power of the Daleks introduced Patrick Troughton as the 'renewed' second incarnation of the Doctor. Tragically, no film recordings of the story are known to survive barring a handful of short extracts. BBC Worldwide announced this month that it has commissioned an animation team to recreate all six episodes of the story using audio recordings of the original soundtrack.

The screening will take place at the BFI Southbank in London on Saturday 5 November at 1pm GMT. The first episode will then receive a general release online via the BBC Store at 5.50pm that same day; meaning that the BFI screening will be the world premiere of the first three episodes.

The BFI will also host a question and answer session with actors Anneke Wills and Frazer Hines.

Tickets will go on sale from the BFI website on Tuesday 4 October at 11.30am, priced £22.70 (with BFI members receiving a discount of £1.70) and restricted to two tickets per person. All tickets include a copy of the DVD release, to be posted two weeks after the event.
