Note:  Re-release in what the BBC are calling “standard” packaging (as opposed to limited edition). For the first time with one of these standard re-releases, the disc contents are slightly different too — the original limited edition release’s remastered credits for Meglos mis-spelt writer John McCulloch’s surname as “McCullogh” — this new release fixes this error.
