The time: 1959. The place: the Shangri-La Holiday Camp, South Wales. The Doctor and Mel want time out. The hedonistic alien Navarinos wants to catch some vintage rock and roll. And two CIA agents want to know what happened to their country's missing satellite.

Note:  This was the first-ever release of the story in Australia — it remained unreleased on VHS (the only classic series story not to receive an Australian VHS release) due to the prohibitive cost of clearing the various rock 'n' roll music clips used throughout.

Note:  Yes, the extras list really does say "Disc one" even though this is a single-disc release — a simple case of human error or was this originally meant to be part of a multi-disc set?
