A fiftieth anniversary tribute to Britain's first pop pioneer. Joe Meek launched the extraordinary instrumental 'Telstar', ushering in an age of electronic, ambient and experimental sounds.

Documentary film maker Chris Phipps draws on personal encounters with many of Joe Meek's recording stars from The Honeycombs to The Tornadoes. All this will re-create Meek's "New World" in an extraordinary mix of shotguns and satellites!
