The complete revised score was presented in a number of 5 minute suites on the November 1999 BBC DVD release of this story (BBCDVD#1006), accidentally slowed down by a noticeable 4% due to incorrect DVD mastering procedures.

Season Twenty-Two

Vengeance on Varos (6V)

The 2001 BBC DVD release of Vengeance On Varos prompted suggestions for an isolated soundtrack of the incidental score for this story.
