The convention was opened by the ABC weather presenter John Barnett. The ABC sent a television crew to record the event, but unfortunately there was a technical problem with the lighting - as a result no video was broadcast by the ABC.

The Invasion

The convention featured the screening of the second Doctor story "The Invasion" which included a locally produced fan recreation of the two missing episodes.


The full Who Con 4 Programme (with membership list blanked out) contains details on the production of "The Invasion", letters from Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy as well as biographies for each of the guests of honour.
