A special 15 minute special will air at 6.45 on Saturday on the CBBC channel between BBC1's Doctor Who Launch and BBC3's Confidential.
Elisabeth Sladen created one of Doctor Who's best loved and most enduring characters, Sarah Jane Smith. For over 35 years she brought the feisty, compassionate journalist to life, creating a figure that was adored by audiences of all ages - truly a heroine whose appeal had no boundaries.The programme will be uploaded to the blog later that day for fans in other countries who are unable to view it on broadcast.
This 15 minute programme is both a tribute and a celebration of Elisabeth Sladen. It brings together stories from friends and colleagues and draws on a rich archive of material to remind us of Sarah Jane's journey, from companion to the Third Doctor to the central character in CBBC's award-winning The Sarah Jane Adventures.
